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."
