Brighton boss Potter: Show of passion good for managers; good to be an idiot!

Brighton boss Graham Potter offers no apologies for his show of passion during victory over Manchester United.

Potter was filmed shouting 'Seagulls' while being mobbed by jubilant fans outside the Amex Stadium following last weekend's 4-0 thrashing of United.

Albion's crushing victory was a first on home soil since Boxing Day and they will seek to add to their club-record Premier League points tally at relegation-threatened Leeds on Sunday afternoon.

"I couldn't get back to my car," he explained. "That was the only way so I had no choice, essentially!

"I am actually an all right person, you know? I have got a bit of emotion and am quite good company if you spend it out of this situation, I'd like to think!

"My role is to help the team and I have to try and be myself to help the team in the best way I can.

"I've always said I don't think it's good to show no emotion at all, that's a bit strange.

"I think I have shown emotion over the last three years - and sometimes not in a good way.

"But after you beat Manchester United 4-0 and play the way we did and you see the supporters and you feel their frustration over a season and the home record, sometimes it's nice to walk through them and act like a bit of an idiot!"
