Black Cats turn to Poyet
3:17pm Monday 7th October 2013 in Sport
Gus Poyet is close to being appointed as the new Sunderland manager.
The 45-year-old Uruguayan, who as manager of Brighton regularly riled Saints fans, is on the verge of agreeing a deal with Black Cats owner Ellis Short that would see him take over from the sacked Paolo Di Canio, with an announcement expected within the next 24 hours.
Poyet would become the sixth man to have held the post on a permanent basis inside the last five years if he is given the job and he will have a reunion with Saints fans soon – with Mauricio Pochettino’s side set to travel to the Stadium of Light for a League Cup fourth round tie on Wednesday, October 30.
