LUFC Former assistant manager sacked live on TV

LUFC Former assistant manager sacked live on TV

Former Leeds United assistant manager Gus Poyet found out live on TV that he had been sacked as manager of Leeds opening day opponents Brighton and Hove Albion.

Poyet, who was the assistant to Dennis Wise at Elland Road, was in the studio for BBC3 summarising for the confederations cup when he was informed by the BBC of his dismissal.

Presenter Mark Chapman read the statement issued by the south coast club to Poyet, who was suspended by the club following their play-off semi-final defeat to Crystal Palace.

Poyet never turned up for a disciplinary meeting last week with the club and he was dismissed following a decision by the Championship club's internal disciplinary panel in his absence.

It is still unclear why the club suspended Poyet, although the former Uruguayan international sent a scathing email to the clubs employees following the defeat to Palace after someone had smeared excrement over the visitors' dressing room.

Leeds face Brighton in their opening fixture of the season at Elland Road on August 3rd.
