Bridge not missing Man City following Brighton loan

Wayne Bridge says his loan move to Championship Brighton & Hove Albion has given him a new lease of life. The left-back has signed on a season-long deal from Manchester City.

The 32 year old, told BBC Sussex: "It's been difficult not playing and you kind of fall out of love with the game.

"It's been a breath of fresh air to come here. Friends and family have noticed the difference in me and how much I'm enjoying football again."

The former England international had found first-team opportunities limited over the last two seasons, making just eight appearances for the Premier League Champions since August 2010.

"It wasn't a hard decision to come here and in the time I've had so far, it was the right decision," he added.

"The manager [Gus Poyet] has been good to me and I've settled in quite quickly.

"I want to be at a team where I can help them. Hopefully I can be here quite a while."
