Brighton captain Bruno to retire after Manchester City game

Bruno joined Brighton from Valencia in 2012

Brighton and Hove Albion captain Bruno will retire when his contract expires this summer, the club has confirmed.

The 38-year-old right-back has been a popular figure at the Amex Stadium since signing from Valencia in 2012 but has only made 13 Premier League appearances for the Seagulls so far this season.

The Spaniard will play his final game on Sunday against Manchester City.

Bruno has made 224 appearances for Brighton during his seven-year spell

Manager Chris Hughton paid tribute to his captain, telling the club’s website: “To put it simply, Bruno has been outstanding – for the club and also for me personally. He’s been an outstanding player, an outstanding professional and is an outstanding person.

“He was already a legend here when I arrived as manager, and what he has done since then has been instrumental in our progress as a club.
