Gus Poyet: Suspended by Brighton

Gus Poyet: Suspended by Brighton

Poyet, assistant manager Mauricio Taricco and first-team coach Charlie Oatway have all been told to stay away pending an internal investigation.

The Uruguayan is believed to have had a series of disagreements with the club's board over his transfer budget for the summer.

But Brighton declined to reveal the reasons behind the suspension of Poyet, who has three years remaining on his current contract.

A club statement read: "Brighton & Hove Albion has confirmed that it has suspended its manager, assistant manager, and its first team coach from their duties.

"The club will now follow its internal procedures with regard to this matter and will make no further comment at this time."

Poyet's future was already the subject of intense speculation linking him to a number of vacancies.

He admitted he was "considering his options" following Brighton's play-off semi-final defeat by Crystal Palace on Monday.

The 45-year-old is reportedly on Everton's shortlist to replace David Moyes when he departs to take over at Manchester United in the summer.

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
