Brighton investigate dressing room incident

Championship side Brighton have launched an investigation into an unsavoury incident before Monday’s play-off loss to Crystal Palace.

Palace won the semi-final second leg 2-0 to secure a final clash with
Watford at Wembley in a game where the home side looked lacklustre.

Manager Gus Poyet was suspended on Thursday, along with assistant manager
Mauricio Taricco and first-team coach Charlie Oatway.

The former Chelsea and Tottenham player’s anger at the excrement that was left in
the Palace dressing room has now been revealed in an email he sent to club
staff.

Poyet, in an email reported in The Sun, said: “I am angry that someone
within this club could endanger our good reputation and stoop so low.

“Did they imagine this would affect the Crystal Palace players? Well
possibly it did. It may just have fired them up more.

“Well someone made a very bad decision and I think it is time to stand up
and take responsibility.

“Not just the culprit, but those employees who are supposed to make our
stadium safe and secure.”

The Uruguayan also went on to criticise the use of clappers, which the club’s
marketing team had given out to fans for use during the game.

He added: “It was an extremely silly idea and the result was an annoying
noise.”

It remains to be seen what action the club will take against Poyet, who has
been strongly linked to replace the departing David Moyes at Everton.
