Graham Potter has come out and suggested that the young defender Tariq Lamptey needs to perform for the Seagulls before getting too ahead of himself.
Graham Potter said: “You never know at the moment, we’re helping him get back from a really frustrating and lengthy injury, so that’s where all our focus is on, to get him on the pitch for us, enjoying his football and as you see in life things happen quickly. The important thing is he just focuses on the here and now and the present. Play well on the pitch for Brighton, and then who knows.”
There have been rumours that Lee Carsley could call up the defender to the England Under-21s. This is something that Potter would be keen on as it would give Lamptey the chance to get some more minutes on the pitch.
Graham Potter said: “I think it’s something we have to be happy with because it means he’s back playing and he’s fit. It’s a conversation between Tariq, Lee and the medical guys. Just to understand what he’s been through and what he needs to do in terms of minutes and times, but we’re always a club that supports international football and players playing for their countries, so we’d be delighted with that.”
Lamptey’s time on the pitch could be hindered by the current form of Joel Veltman. The Dutchman put in a man of the match display against Crystal Palace from the right-back position, and it would be very harsh to drop him on current form.
