Jurgen Locadia furious with Brighton treatment: Very strange here

Jurgen Locadia has hit out at the way he's been treated at Brighton since the New Year.

The Dutch striker has again found himself frozen out without explanation.

And he told De Telegraaf: "It is very strange how things are going here. The story is simply not right.

“I felt it was going in the right direction, but three weeks ago I even ended up in the stands. I was signed for a lot of money. Still, I hardly get a chance.

"I can go to the trainer (Chris Hughton), but I don't think it makes sense. I don't think I can blame myself much. Maybe I should have scored more. In a short space of time, however, that is not always easy.

"Of course it is financially wonderful here, but what good is it if you don't play? I will talk to the club about my chances for next season. If the trainer sees me a bench player, then I don't want to stay."
