Sunderland Set to Announce Gus Poyet as Their New Manager Within Next 24 Hours: Daily Soccer Report

gus poyet Sunderland Set to Announce Gus Poyet as Their New Manager Within Next 24 Hours: Daily Soccer Report

Sunderland are set to announce Gus Poyet as their new manager within the next 24 hours, according to reports.

The Uruguayan is favored to replace former manager Paolo Di Canio. Poyet previously managed Brighton from 2009-2013, where he had a 44% win percentage and helped promote Brighton from League One to the Championship. He left on bad terms with the club after his side were knocked out in the Championship play-off semi-final against Crystal Palace, and is currently in a legal dispute with the south coast club.

The challenge about Poyet is that he has no experience as a Premier League manager. The former Chelsea footballer had his Brighton team playing a very attractive Swansea-style of football on the pitch.

What’s your opinion about Poyet? Will he be able to succeed where Di Canio failed? And will he be able to keep Sunderland from being relegated this season? Share your opinion in the comments section below.
