Brighton's Alan Navarro backs Kazenga LuaLua to shine

Kazenga LuaLua
LuaLua signed a three-year deal earlier this week

Brighton & Hove Albion midfielder Alan Navarro has backed Kazenga LuaLua to regain his form after joining the club on a permanent deal.

The 20-year-old winger broke his ankle in November last year and is yet to cement a place in the side this season.

Navarro told BBC Sussex: "It's difficult for anyone but Kaz will come back. He's too much of a good player.

"You can't doubt his ability. He's an exciting player and has a great future ahead of him. He's a great signing."

Navarro spent eight months on the sidelines last season after rupturing a cruciate ligament, and he admits he is still yet to hit top form.

"I've just played back-to-back games for the first time in the last two years," he continued.

"Hopefully I'll do well enough to stay in the team but it's down to the gaffer. I personally need a run of games.

"I'm match fit but I need that sharpness."
