Seagulls look for temporary option
Brighton are believed to be looking for an interim manager for now after parting company with Gus Poyet on Sunday.
The former Chelsea and Tottenham player had been suspended by the Seagulls last month and was told to stay away from the club, pending an internal inquiry.
The club's disciplinary panel met on Friday and Saturday and their decision was announced whilst Poyet was working as a TV pundit for the Confederations Cup action.
The 45-year-old, who led Brighton to the play-offs last season, has indicated that he plans to lodge an appeal against his sacking, as he feels it is the "right thing to do".
Former Barcelona youth team coach Oscar Garcia Junyent is the current bookmakers' favourite to succeed Poyet, while Glenn Hoddle and Harry Redknapp have also been mentioned as potential candidates.
