Gus Poyet: Has one last chance to attend a hearing this week

Gus Poyet's future as Brighton manager is no clearer after he failed to attend a disciplinary hearing at the club due to "disputed legal reasons".

Poyet, assistant manager Mauricio Taricco and coach Charlie Oatway were suspended by Brighton last month in the aftermath of the play-off semi-final defeat by Crystal Palace.

Taricco has since had his suspension lifted but Poyet was due at a disciplinary hearing on Monday morning.

However, Brighton say the Uruguayan did not show up and have given him one last chance to attend a hearing later in the week.

A club statement read: "Following the completion of a detailed internal investigation, Gus Poyet's disciplinary hearing commenced this morning.

"However, Gus Poyet elected not to attend for disputed legal reasons. The club's disciplinary panel chose to adjourn the meeting to later this week to provide Mr Poyet with a final opportunity to attend.

"The club's separate internal process involving Charlie Oatway continues."

s it the same people that complain about Chelsea that complain about Mayweather? You should by now know what to expect from both, if you can't appreciate how good they are at nullifying their opponents then don't watch them.

do concede though, that getting rid of Luiz has made them less entertaining. In the same way that driving with both eyes open is less exciting, but probably a good idea.
