Gus Poyet Suspended By Ligue One Side Bordeaux After Incredible Post-Match Presser

Gus Poyet Suspended By Ligue One Side Bordeaux After Incredible Post-Match Presser

Gus Poyet has been given the boot by Bordeaux just one game into the Ligue One season following a crazy rant where he claimed a player had been sold without even consulted.

The French side beat FC Mariupol to reach the Europa League play-offs last night but prior the game the former Chelsea midfielder let rip at the board over the sale of Gaetan Laborde to Montpellier without him even knowing and threatened to quit.

"No I am not happy, It is one of my worst days at the club," the former Sunderland and Brighton boss said to begin his outburst.

"What the club have done with Gaetan Laborde is a disgrace. I think we have to stop here. I told the club not to let him leave until we had bought someone else.

"They have not recruited and they let Laborde go. I arrived at 11.35am. Laborde was not here. He was in Montpellier. Nobody told me anything.

"I want to talk to my agent and I am going to make a decision. I don't know how this is going to finish. Do I have the desire to continue? No. They have done that against me, against the players and the supporters.

"I need an explanation from the club: from the owner or the president. They are going to explain to me tomorrow (Friday) and we will see if I carry on or not. Am I going to resign? I don't know."

Poyet made the threat to resign but there's been conflicting reports as to whether he's been sacked or suspended - with the BBC reporting the latter.

It's also been noted that the club's players initially refused to take part in training because they disagreed with what has happened to Poyet.

The Uruguayan is no stranger to a bizarre managerial situation. In 2013, he was informed that Brighton had binned him off live on BBC while he was providing punditry for the Confederations Cup.
