Bruno: I'm not just here because of Vicente
Albion new boy Bruno has set his sights on top-flight football at The Amex.
But the former Valencia right-back insists he has not joined the Seagulls solely to link up with good mate Vicente.
Bruno met the media today after completing a two-year deal with Albion which will kick in when his Valencia contract expires at the end of this week.
The Seagulls still hope and expect Vicente to return for another season although boss Gus Poyet admitted that bit of business has not been tied up yet.
Bruno was in regular contact with Vicente last season and said: “Yes, that was an improtant factor.
"Of course he is a team mate and a friend. We have a great relationship.
"But this decision was taken independently of that.
"It wasn't the main reason for the decision."
The Barcelona-born defender said he knew what to expect from Championship football.
He added: “I’m crazy about football. I love football and I follow all leagues, including the Championship.
"With Vicente involved, I follow it even more.
"I know about Brighton and other teams, the play-offs.
“This team has been built for (promotion). They are doing things the way they should be done.
"My ambition is to work hard and give my all."
