Trossard dropped by Brighton for disciplinary reasons

BRIGHTON, England (AP) — Brighton forward Leandro Trossard will miss the Premier League game against Liverpool on Saturday because manager Roberto De Zerbi is unhappy with the Belgium international’s attitude. De Zerbi says Trossard left a training session last week without permission after being informed he would not start the FA Cup match against Middlesbrough on Saturday. De Zerbi says “I spoke with him and I explained this attitude … I don’t like.” De Zerbi says he is open to reconciliation with Trossard. Trossard is one of Brighton’s best players and has been linked with a move away in the January transfer window.
