Poyet drops Brighton legal action

Sunderland boss Gus Poyet has dropped his legal case against former club Brighton and Hove Albion.

Sunderland manager Gus Poyet.
Gus Poyet left Brighton under a cloud.

Poyet, 45, was relieved of his duties at the AMEX stadium for 'gross misconduct' and sought to take the club to an employment tribunal after an appeal he lodged with the club was dismissed. Subsequently taking the reigns at Sunderland last month, the former Chelsea midfielder has now ceased all legal action, with The Argus reporting that no financial settlement was reached.

Speaking in a statement, Poyet's legal representative said: “In relation to Mr Gus Poyet’s departure from Brighton Football Club, both Mr Gus Poyet and Brighton Football Club have now reached a settlement whereby Mr Gus Poyet has withdrawn his Employment Tribunal Claim.

“Mr Gus Poyet would like to take this opportunity to express his sincere thanks to Brighton Football Club and in particular the fans for the tremendous support received during his time as manager at Brighton Football Club. Mr Gus Poyet wishes both Brighton Football Club and the fans well for the future.”
