Brighton’s Michal Karbownik took on a new challenge – and a new role


Albion’s midfield picture is becoming clearer as the season approaches.

Not just in terms of the Premier League frontline and the bench.

Also in the entire squad and in the U23.

But there’s a new name in the field who’s at a pivotal point in his career.

Michal Karbownik has stated his intention to play in midfield rather than full-back or full-back.

The Seagulls will probably not have that in the coming season.

So he is one more whose future needs to be clarified.

Midfield duo Jensen Weir and Marc Leonard went on loan for the entire season yesterday.

Leonard, who is linked with Exeter City, has signed for Northampton, who face Colchester at home on Saturday.

Weir will operate with Morecambe in League One.

Karbownik played well in the first 45 minutes against Union St-Gilloise alongside Adam Lallana and Weir in midfield.

But that was a low-key introduction and came before Alexis Mac Allister, Moises Caicedo and Enock Mwepu returned to action.

What comes next for the former Legia Warsaw player remains to be seen.

Graham Potter was asked about the young Pole and his midfield ambitions on Saturday in Reading, where he was not involved.

Albion’s head coach said: “That’s where he sees himself in the near to mid-term.

“He’s one of those guys who’s back at the training ground and working on his fitness.

“I think he has the opportunity to play in midfield.

“We will look for the right things for him where he is next season.

“There’s clearly a lot of competition in that area of ​​the pitch.

“But he is a young player who needs to start playing football.

“That’s the challenge for us with him.

“We want him to play football and get a few minutes.”

Teddy Jenks and Jack Spong are also among the younger midfielders in the ranks.

Jenks was loaned out to Aberdeen while Spong featured on occasion for Albion’s under-23s last season.

Former Under-23 midfielder Tudor Baluta left the club at the end of last season and now returns to Romania with early-season leaders Farul Constanta, coached by Gheorghe Hagi.—new-role/?ref=rss Brighton’s Michal Karbownik took on a new challenge – and a new role
