Assistant boss Taricco happy to remain in background at Brighton

Brighton assistant boss Mauricio Taricco insists he has no intention of following Gus Poyet's route into management. Poyet was assistant coach at Swindon, Leeds and Tottenham before he was given the reigns at the Withdean Stadium.

However, his assistant Taricco says he does not harbour ambitions to manage and insists he is just happy to be back in English football.

"I don't actually [fancy management], not at all," he said. "I'm happy where I am.

"I have a great relationship with [Gus]; very honest and open. We're two honest guys who speak the truth - call a spade a spade.

"And I am happy where I am, I'm not thinking about being a manager."
