Sunderland boss Poyet drops claim against Brighton

Sunderland boss Gus Poyet has dropped his compo claim against Brighton.

Poyet has dropped his legal case against Sky Bet Championship side Brighton, the League Managers Association has confirmed.

He was sacked by the Seagulls in June for gross misconduct having previously been suspended by the club in the aftermath of their play-off defeat by Crystal Palace.

A statement on the LMA website said: "In relation to Gus Poyet's departure from Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club, both Gus Poyet and the Club have now reached a mutual understanding where Gus Poyet has withdrawn his employment tribunal claim.

"Gus Poyet would like to take this opportunity to express his sincere thanks to Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club and in particular the fans for the tremendous support received during his time as manager.

"He wishes both the club and the fans well for the future."
