Brighton boss Graham Potter joked that his modelling days were already long gone after a tumble on the beach left him sporting a nasty facial injury.
Potter appeared at his press conference ahead of Saturday’s trip to Sheffield United with heavy bruising below his left eye and a significant gash on his cheek.
“I would love to be able to tell you that there’s a heroic, chivalrous story here that I can make myself look really good but unfortunately I just missed my footing walking home on some steps and then went crashing into a metal railing,” he said.
“And I have got a bit of whiplash on my back.
“They (my modelling days) were over a long, long time ago – if they ever started!”

Explaining the incident further, Potter added: “I can’t even blame it on anything.
“I was walking on the beach trying to look where I could shelter from some wind, missed my footing, missed my step, wasn’t thinking, probably had too much on my mind from the last few days.
“Thankfully it’s only hit my cheek – it could have been worse!
“I look a little bit better, so the lady upstairs tells me in terms of, ‘I am looking a bit more rugged and handsome’ but I think she’s crazy, of course.”
Potter spoke about the breakaway European Super League after Brighton’s 0-0 draw with Chelsea on Tuesday.
He said: “It has been disturbing, sad and frustrating.”
“It feels like the game has been attacked and the integrity of the game in this country and across Europe. It is about having your fate sorted on the pitch. Today was about competing on the pitch and we showed we could do that.’
“It felt like a monopoly trying to control the competition for profit and not the supporters.
“It was nice to see the supporters out there and that feeling and emotion. It was universal in how everyone got behind the issue. Hopefully we can move forward. We have to remain vigilant.
“Football is a fantastic game and there are people who can exploit it. We need to fight for supporters and communities and clubs. Nobody wants a franchise or their fate to be decided on anything other than the pitch.”
