Brighton Suspends Coach Following Excrement Incident

MOST COMMENTED

Brighton coach Gus Poyet, assistant Mauricio Taricco and first-team coach Charlie Oatway were suspended on Monday following an email that Poyet sent to all staff regarding excrement that had been left in the visitors’ locker room prior to the second leg of his team’s Championship play-off series against Crystal Palace, which Brighton lost 2-0, last week.

From the email: “When Crystal Palace players and staff arrived to the Amex and went into their dressing room, they found themselves in a very uncomfortable situation. For some reason, someone had access to the away dressing room and done something terrible, trying to upset everyone related to Palace. To say it in clear English, someone had a ‘poo’ all outside the toilets, over and around the toilets. I am angry that someone within this club could endanger our good reputation and stoop so low. I would like someone to accept responsibility and resign.”

The suspended trio is not believed to have been involved in the incident. No one at the club has yet claimed responsibility; Brighton is currently investigating further. Poyet, who has been in charge at Brighton since 2009, guided the team to the Championship from League One (England’s third-tier) in 2011. The former Tottenham and Chelsea player has been shortlisted as a potential replacement for Everton coach David Moyes, who moves to Manchester United next season.
