I don't know", he said.

The Iranian winger joined Brighton for a reported club record fee of £17m from AZ Alkmaar last month and came off the bench to make his debut in Saturday's 2-0 opening-day defeat at Watford.

Zinedine Zidane is reportedly interested in a management role in the Premier League, with Manchester United his destination of choice, but some of the Red Devils' fan base have jumped to the support of their current boss.
