Taricco follows Poyet out of Brighton

Brighton assistant manager Mauricio Taricco has left the club 48 hours after Gus Poyet was sacked by the Seagulls.

• LMA backs Poyet in dispute

Taricco had been overseeing pre-season training while former Tottenham team-mate Poyet was suspended by the club prior to his dismissal, but he has now departed by "mutual consent".

The move comes with former Barcelona midfielder Oscar Garcia expected to be named interim Seagulls boss on Thursday.

Garcia's former club Maccabi Tel Aviv have announced that assistant boss Ruben Martinez and fitness coach Juan Torrijo Navaro have left to "continue their partnership with Oscar Garcia''.

Poyet, himself suspended by Brighton last month along with Taricco and coach Charlie Oatway, was axed on Sunday night following a disciplinary hearing into an alleged breach of contract.

Poyet is set to appeal against the decision so Brighton can only appoint an interim boss.

But it is understood the club intend to make Garcia, who quit as Maccabi head coach last month after guiding them to the title, their permanent manager once the dispute with Poyet is settled.
