Poyet aims blast at referee
08 Feb 2010 - 12:07:50
Brighton and Hove Albion boss Gus Poyet has refused to apologise to referee Steve Cook following Saturday's stormy 1-1 draw at Leyton Orient.
The former Tottenham and Chelsea star was sent to the stands by the official after Cook failed to award the Seagulls a penalty.
He fumed: "There are no excuses. I am open to speak to anyone but don't expect me to apologise.
"You could ask even the Leyton Orient fans, that was a penalty and a red card. The referee was ten yards away and didn't give it.
I was told he didn't see it. Didn't see it? He needs some glasses.
"I got sent off and that is not a problem for me. All my life I have accepted responsibility for my actions - the referee didn't accept his responsibility.
"He is quite young and for me it is the worst decision he has made in his career."
