Brighton Manager Roberto de Gerberi has called Trossard’s attitude “disliked”, claiming the forward skipped a training session last week without his prior permission.
Trossard, 28, has been struggling for form since returning from the 2022 World Cup Belgium.

Ahead of the game against Liverpool, de Gerby said: “Leandro is not on the player list for tomorrow.
“Leandro knows my thoughts very well. The last session before the Middlesbrough game, when he realized he wasn’t going to play, he left the session without saying anything to me.
“That’s not good. I spoke to her on Monday and told her that I don’t like this attitude.
De Gerby added that he “doesn’t know” what Trossard’s “problem” is and urged him to work hard to regain his place in the team.
He said: “He knows very well that if he wants to play with me he has to work hard, run, be on the right track.
“I don’t know what the problem is. I want to be honest. I’m open with him.”
Trossard’s existing contract with Brighton, which expires this summer, has an option to extend next year until June 2024.
According to reports in Belgium, the 28-year-old has consistently rejected offers of a new contract.
