Poyet's future as Brighton boss to be decided this week

Brighton boss Gus Poyet is hopeful his future will be resolved this week. The Uruguayan was suspended by the Championship club earlier this month and the club are holding an internal investigation.

Poyet told BBC Match of the Day: "Unfortunately, we cannot comment for legal reasons.

"We need to wait and see. I hope it's going to be resolved this week."

Asked if, with hindsight, he would have conducted himself differently, Poyet replied: "No. It's me. It's the way I am.

"I'm a coach, I'm an honest person. I work the way I do and everybody knows how I treat the players.

"It's a difficult situation for me. I think when we have news it's going to be easier for everybody to talk."

Brighton have insisted they will not comment on the situation until their investigation is concluded.
