The Club badge sign is put up at The AmexIt has been reported that Gus Poyet has been sacked as manager of Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club after an apparent falling-out with the board at the end of the last football season.

Brighton released a statement on Sunday (23 June 2013) on their website that it had dismissed Poyet following the decision made by the nPower Championship club’s internal disciplinary panel. The statement claimed that the football club had previously informed Mr Poyet of the decision but this apparently came as news to Mr Poyet, who claimed that the first he had heard of his dismissal was being told by BBC staff during a Confederations Cup match.

Mr Poyet has stated that he had not received any communication from Brighton prior to the 23rd June 2013 and that he had not expected the decision that he had received as his lawyers were still negotiating with Brighton’s representatives. Mr Poyet had apparently failed to attend an internal disciplinary hearing last week (for unspecified reasons) – a decision which the League Managers Association had endorsed – and had been waiting for further negotiations between the representatives of the two parties. He stated that the first he had become aware of the decision was when BBC staff handed him a copy of the statement whilst on set during the first half of the match. After having read the statement he commented that the “BBC have a great story forever” and that he had had “no communication, no texts, no e-mail”. He further confirmed that he would be seeking to appeal the decision as it was “the right thing to do”.

The problems at Birghton appear to have stemmed from a falling-out with the board of the Brighton club after the defeat against Crystal Palace in the play-offs of the nPower Championship. Mr Poyet, his assistant Mauricio Tarrico and Charlie Oatway (a coach) were suspended, with Mr Tarrico subsequently having his suspension lifted.

I was generally impressed with the fast turn around, efficiency, responsiveness, and consideration of circumstances. I needed a couple of areas of advice quickly and with Redmans help was able to get to a conclusion quickly and with minimum stress. They were friendly and professional throughout - I'd use them again.
