Brighton confirm that former manager Gus Poyet has failed with his appeal for unfair dismissal.

Brighton & Hove Albion have confirmed that former manager Gus Poyet has failed with his appeal for unfair dismissal.

The Uruguayan was suspended by the club in May following the team's Championship playoff semi-final defeat to Crystal Palace.

Poyet then refused to attend a disciplinary hearing for legal reasons and was subsequently sacked for gross misconduct.

An official Brighton statement read: "Following a suspension, investigation, disciplinary meeting, and separate appeal hearing, which was conducted by three members of the club's board in London on July 11 and July 12 2013, Brighton & Hove Albion today confirmed that after further consideration Gus Poyet's dismissal for gross misconduct has been upheld.

"The panel's decision was delivered to Gus Poyet and his advisers a short time ago."

Oscar Garcia was appointed Brighton's new manager on June 26.
