Brighton and Hove Albion goalkeeper Mathew Ryan has told The Telegraph that he does not care about the chants from Wolverhampton Wanderers at the weekend.

The Seagulls played out a goalless draw with Wolves away from home at the Molineux Stadium in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

The performance of Chris Hughton’s side was not great, as they played defensive and boring football.

 

Wolves fans are used to watching attacking and attractive football under manager Nuno, and they were not impressed with how the Seagulls played against their side at the Molineux Stadium.

During the match, Wolves fans chanted: ‘How do you watch this every week?’

Brighton and Australia international goalkeeper Ryan was in action at the weekend, and the 27-year-old has responded to those chants, claiming that he doesn’t care about what Wolves fans think.

Ryan told The Telegraph: "I don't care, to be honest. We got a point and a clean sheet and I'm happy.

"They can call it how they see it, everyone is entitled to their opinions, but I'm just focused on what we need to do as a team to get safe.

"Any way we can take the sting out of the game, slow it down, just hang in there for as long as we can... keeping a clean sheet, the worst case scenario is you get a point like this.”

Fighting relegation

Brighton are fighting for survival in the Premier League, and one can understand why the Seagulls have to do whatever they can to draw or win.
