Oscar Garcia excited by Brighton & Hove Albion challenge

Oscar Garcia calls Brighton & Hove Albion "one of the most exciting clubs in Europe" after taking charge of the Championship outfit last week.

Brighton & Hove Albion boss Oscar Garcia has admitted that he cannot wait to begin the new season with the club.

The 40-year-old, who has formerly coached Barcelona's youth team, signed a three-year deal with the Championship outfit on Friday.

"I am delighted to have signed a long-term contract with the club and I am now very much looking forward to the challenge ahead," he told the club's official website.

"Brighton is one of the most exciting clubs in Europe and the potential here is very good. The squad is strong and the footballing set-up is excellent. The aim is to continue the good progress that the club has made in recent seasons.

"I have already received a very warm welcome from the club's staff, players and supporters. Brighton & Hove is a very nice city, the stadium is superb, and a world class training facility is being built for our use from next season."

Garcia replaced Gus Poyet at the helm.
