Brighton striker Murray backs Bloom vision

Brighton and Hove Albion striker Glenn Murray is an admirer of the club's chairman Tony Bloom.

Murray knows that it is difficult for the club to compete with wealthier teams in the Premier League.

But he believes that Bloom has a vision for the club that will see them continue to succeed in the long term.

Murray told reporters: "To be fair to the chairman, it is what he has been trying to do ever since the Championship [promoting attacking football and youth players].

"Obviously the press have shown a bit more interest in the Premier League but the progress has been slow, steady and this is what he does.

"Getting rid of Chris Hughton last year and bringing in Graham Potter was quite a big decision.

"Again it is just part of the process of taking this club where he sees it going.

"He has come and said he sees it going into the top ten in the Premier League."
