BBC Sport - Brighton boss Sami Hyypia backed by chairman Tony Bloom

Chairman backs Brighton boss Hyypia

Brighton & Hove Albion chairman Tony Bloom tells BBC Sussex that manager Sami Hyypia and the playing squad will learn from their recent struggles.

The Seagulls are currently on a run of one win in 12 games and are just one point above the Championship relegation zone.

Bloom believes that 41-year-old Hyypia "is going to be learning a lot as he goes along" in his first managerial post in England.

In a wide-ranging interview, Bloom also discusses the possibility of transfer activity in January and the changes to Financial Fair Play regulations earlier this month.
