Former Chelsea midfielder Guy Poyet has been sacked as manager of Brighton and Hove Albion FC.
Poyet has been suspended for the past months from the club as a result of alleged misdemeanours, but only heard about tonight's sacking while he was commentating for the BBC on the Nigeria v Spain Confederations Cup match.
Poyet said he will appeal.
The former Uruguay player was a Blues favourite following his signing for Chelsea in 1997.
He played 105 games for the Blues and scored 36 goals before decamping to north London and Spurs in 2001.
