Brighton manager Gus Poyet last night vowed to come out of retirement if his Brighton team reach 100 points this season before the last game of the season.

If they achieved that feet, Poyet said that he will bring himself on as a substitute for the final 10 minutes of Brighton’s final game of the season at Meadow Lane, where they take on Notts County in the seasons climax.

The Seagulls are currently top of League One with 83 points, so would need to earn 17 more points from their next seven games against Rochdale, Sheffield Wednesday, Dagenham, Walsall, Southampton, Colchester and Huddersfield.

To achieve 100 points, Brighton would have to win at least 5 of those games, drawing the other two. 6 wins and a defeat is enough, but Poyet has challenged his squad to go unbeaten for the remainder of the season.

Poyet retired from football in 2004, hanging up his boots after a successful spell with Tottenham Hotspur.

Poyet would be following in the footsteps of his assist Mauricio Tarricco, who came out of retirement this season to help out the injury crisis in Brighton’s defence.

  • Why would he want to do that? His players have done brilliantly for him and he wants to grab more of the limelight.
    Hasn’t he done enough by being the manager of the season in division One this season?
