After Bordeaux’s 2-1 win over Marioupou in the Europa League qualifiers in August, the French club allowed their striker Gaetan Laborde to join Montpellier without the knowledge of their then manager, Gus Poyet.

The Uruguayan coach expressed his unhappiness at the press conference and called the club’s owners ‘a disgrace’, following which he no longer remains in charge of the Ligue 1 outfit.

He sat down for an interview with French outlet Foot Mercato, in which the 50-year-old spoke in detail about his situation at Matmut Atlantique.

At the end of the interview, the former Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur midfielder revealed his first option is to return to England, where he has managed Brighton & Hove Albion and Sunderland between 2009 to 2015.

Since then, Poyet has been AEK Athens, Real Betis, Shanghai Shenhua and Bordeaux and the former Leeds United assistant manager explains how he has progressed after leaving the Stadium of Light.

“I’ll be quiet, watch football. Maybe do some press. I like to go on TV here in France. Do something in England. I will start listening,” he said.

“If you ask me the first option, it’s back to England. When I left Sunderland, I decided to watch the other championships. And I did well since [then] as I have a lot more experience now.”
