Brighton Suspend Boss Gus Poyet

Former Chelsea man fuels exit speculation.

Check in to Crystal Palace vs Watford – nPower Championship playoff final

Brighton manager Gus Poyet has been suspended and banned by the club as they launch an enquiry into comments he made following Monday night’s playoff semi final defeat to Crystal Palace, The Express reports.

Poyet has been tipped to take over from Martin Jol at Fulham after he was linked with the soon to be vacant post at Everton and the south coast club have suspended him, along with assistants Mauricio Taricco and Charlie Oatway as they probe his comments after the defeat.

“I have got to think about myself as well sometimes,” Poyet said.

“Every summer you sit down and analyse where you can go, where you can get or not and depending on that you have got a project or a way of getting better.”

“I’ve not been in this situation but I don’t like it,” Poyet said on Monday. “It’s changed my view completely about everything I was prepared for, so we’ll see now.”

“I have always said that all the time we keep improving I am going to be at this football club and the day we hit the roof, I’m not.”

“Is there something more? Right now I don’t know, so I need to make sure I know there is, because if not I am not going to stay forever.”

A statement on the club website read: “Brighton confirm it has suspended its manager, assistant manager and its first-team coach. The club will now follow its internal procedures.”
