Bizarre! Ex Brighton manager Gus Poyet finds out he’s been sacked live on TV

Tonight, whilst working for the BBC as a pundit at the Confederations Cup, Brighton manager Gus Poyet received some pretty awful news.

Brighton announced on their website that they had sacked the Uruguayan man who took them to the Championship Play-offs this season.

Poyet had heard nothing from the club in over a month after they suspended him following comments he made after the loss to Crystal Palace.

Gus Poyet, straight after learning he had been sacked from his job, had to answer questions live on the BBC.

Not exactly professional from the Seagulls.
