Former Albion boss Oscar Garcia has added his congratulations to those heading in the direction of Paul Barber.

The Seagulls’ chief executive celebrates ten years in the role this weekend.

Oscar, now in charge at Reims in France, was head coach in Barber’s second season at the club.

He also mentioned chairman Tony Bloom in his message – and referred to Albion as “we”.

Oscar tweeted: “Brilliant CEO, he is a massive part of the Brighton’s progress over the last ten years!

“Fantastic and humble guy! With him and Tony we are in the good way! Congratulations Paul!”
