Ghanaian forward Elvis Manu has been sacked by Go Ahead Eagles for neglecting his loan club to support his old side.
The 23-year-old signed for Brighton in 2015 from Feyenoord and was loaned to Go Ahead Eagles in the Eredivisie last January.
Elvis Manu has only netted twice in 14 games for Go Ahead Eagles.
And he enraged club chiefs last Sunday after he showed his love for Feyenoord on social media before Eagles’ 4-0 defeat to Ajax, which confirmed their relegation.
The Dutch side accused him of “unprofessional conduct”.
He has also appeared just 14 times for the Seagulls and is not expected to be part of Chris Hughton’s squad in the Premier League next term.
An Eagles statement read: “Go Ahead Eagles say goodbye to Elvis Manu as from today.
“He stood accused of unprofessional conduct around the time of our match against Ajax.
“His two posts on social media that day led us to believe he was not fully focused on our crucial game.
Go Ahead Eagles’ defeat saw them get relegated from the Dutch top-flight league.
“Club management saw the posts after the game, and Manu was told this morning [Monday] that his services are no longer required.
“We will now set our sights fully on Sunday’s match against Sparta Rotterdam, when we hope to end the season in worthy fashion.”
Manu came through Feyenoord’s academy and spent a decade with them before joining Brighton.
