Bruno is Premier class says No.1 fan

Bruno has impressed the keeper behind him

First published in Albion by , Chief sports reporter

ALBION’S Spanish defender Bruno has been hailed as Premier League class by the man behind him.

Keeper Tomasz Kuszczak believes the Seagulls have not one top flight full-back but two in Bruno and Wayne Bridge.

Gus Poyet’s side still have the best defensive record in the Championship, despite Saturday’s 3-3 draw against ten-man Wolves at Molineux.

They have lost only two of the 13 Championship games right-back Bruno and left-back Bridge have started together since the opening day defeat at Hull.

Kuszczak and Bridge both have experience of the Premier League. The former Manchester United and West Brom shot-stopper is convinced Bruno, 32, could play there too following his summer move from Valencia.

Kuszczak told The Argus: “We know Wayne has been an international and has had a great career with two of the best teams in the Premier League (Chelsea and Manchester City).

“You can see his ability on the pitch. Bruno has showed his quality as well. He has brought something to the team in an attacking sense.

“He is a very clever player. He reads the game and there is no doubt he could play in the Premier League. He is a very important player for us.”

Albion are sweating on the fitness of Bridge for Saturday’s visit to Huddersfield after he suffered calf tightness at Wolves.

They hope to have Adam El-Abd (hamstring) back from a two-match absence at centre-half for the trip to Yorkshire.

I agree. Bruno's a very exciting addition to the team and I'm a bit surprised he's come in for a bit of criticism from some on here of late.

I've criticised Bruno, but I think it has been warranted. In the games before Peterborough at the Amex, I think he was very hit and miss and lost the ball far too many times.

Having said that, the rest of the time he has been excellent - I guess because he set the bar high in the first place, I'd expected him to continue at that level.

An exciting player.....From what I have seen he is great going forward and creating chances, not so convinced by his defensive qualities?

But yes, we have a super team - lets be proud to be seagulls!

Interesting who else in the current squad we might term premiership class? Excluding the enigma Vicente I'd probably say... Buckley, Bridge, Kuszczak, possibly Bridcutt. Closely followed by CMS, Bruno, Dobbie, Orlandi. Dunk possibly soon?

Bruno is certainly one of my three players that we have in the squad that are top level contenders, Bridge being the fourth but as a loan player he is not ours. ..

I am afraid Dunk is the weak link at the moment. Forthcoming events causing a distraction and too lack of match practice probably.
