Sunderland manager Gus Poyet has revealed that he will not quit the club with six matches remaining in the season, despite the relegation troubles. He took over from Paolo Di Canio just a few months into the new campaign, but he has been unable to get results under the belt. When he took over, Sunderland were rock bottom of the table. Even after several matches the campaign, the club still find themselves in the same position, but with very few matches left to recover. As a result, they are staring down potential relegation.
Despite this, manager Poyet says that he will not resign from his position. Poyet has had a number of high profile players at his disposal, but it is thought that most of them have not been professional during his time at the club. Players like Andrea Dossena had the experience from the likes of Liverpool, but they have not been helped by others being in a poor form. Last season, the club barely managed to survive and it was only because of the goals from Steven Fletcher. This time around, the former Wolves man has not been scoring goals on a regular basis to save them.
Ahead of a difficult match against title contenders Manchester city, questions have been asked about Poyet’s future.
“It looks to me that people are expecting me to walk out. I don’t know why they have that impression. I’m not going to quit. I hope so. If not, we have got a massive problem. The more solutions I find, the easier my job is going to be and I want that job to be as easy as possible. Here we are talking about solutions for the club and maybe my way is not right. If I am the problem, it would be nice if somebody told me,” said the manager
