Poyet hints at possible Brighton exit

Published Add your comment

Brighton manager Gus Poyet has hinted that he could be on the brink of leaving the club following their Championship play-off semi-final defeat at the hands of Crystal Palace on Monday night.

Manchester United-bound Wilfried Zaha struck twice in the second half to give the south Londoners a comfortable 2-0 aggregate victory over their bitter rivals at the Amex Stadium.

And Poyet believes he may have taken the club as far as possible after their promotion bid came to an abrupt end.

Talking to the BBC, the former Chelsea and Tottenham man said: "I have always said that all the time we keep improving I am going to be at this football club and the day we hit the roof, I'm not.

"Is there something more? Right now I don't know, so I need to make sure I know there is, because if not I am not going to stay forever."

He added: "I've not been in this situation but I don't like it."

"It's changed my view completely about everything I was prepared for, so we'll see now.”

The Uruguayan has been linked with the manager’s role at Everton after the Toffees confirmed David Moyes will leave the club to succeed Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford next season.

Poyet is highly regarded within the game, the 45-year-old rejected the Reading job in March, but having failed to get Brighton promoted he is likely to be tempted by the vacant position at Goodison Park.
