Jackett: Pompey can bridge the gap

Have your say

Gus Poyet has insisted clubs who go into administration should be relegated.

The Brighton boss believes teams like Pompey are ‘cheating’ by overspending and then calling in administrators.

Poyet said: ‘I’ve got a clear view of that and I’m not talking about Portsmouth exclusively.

‘I would be more severe with any club, because it is people that, right or wrong, are cheating the competition.

‘They try to spend what they don’t have to see if they can get up, and if they don’t they go into administration.

‘It shouldn’t be like that. For me categorically I would like the teams that get into that down, not ten points, down.

‘Then we will see how the teams are going to react and who is going to take responsibility.

‘That is the other point. Somebody needs to be responsible.’
