Gus Poyet TEAMtalk

Gus Poyet has been sacked as manager of Bordeaux after labelling the club a “disgrace”.

The former Brighton and Sunderland has been left furious after striker Gaetan Laborde was sold to Montpellier without his knowledge.

“No I am not happy, It is one of my worst days at the club,” said Poyet. “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 did not listen and let Laborde go.

“We arrived at the hotel today at 11:45 and Laborde was not there. We called him and he was in Montpellier.

“Nobody told me anything!”

And that has led to the dismissal of the Uruguayan with chairman Stephane Martin saying enough was enough.

Martin told a press conference: “Gustavo Poyet went overboard yesterday so we decided to lay him off this morning.”
