Brighton & Hove Albion has sacked manager Gus Poyet following five weeks of uncertainty after he was suspended along with two other members of the backroom staff.

Poyet, formally a fans favourite who took Brighton from bottom of League 1 to fourth place in The Championship last season, faced scrutiny from both the board and supporters after making disparaging comments following his side’s 2-0 loss against Crystal Palace in the Second Leg of the Play Off Semi Final.

The Uruguayan, previously one of longest serving managers in English during his four seasons at Brighton, was suspended and told to stay away from the club.

The sacking marks the end of a turbulent time for the club and the South Coast side will now be looking to hire an interim manager for the remainder of the season to oversee the first weeks of training and pre-season fixtures.
