Sunderland captain O'Shea hopes club keep manager Poyet

Sunderland captain John O’Shea has urged the club to keep hold of manager Gus Poyet and not keep changing bosses, according to Sky Sports.

O’Shea served 12 years as a defender at Man Utd under one manager – Sir Alex Ferguson – but has already seen four different people in charge during his stay in the north east. The Republic of Ireland international believes that in Poyet the club have finally found a man who is capable of helping the players realise their potential, and wants the Uruguayan to stay at the Stadium of Light for as long as possible.


Sunderland pulled off one of the most impressive relegation escapes in living memory this season – just a over month ago staring up at every other team in the league and seven points away from safety, a draw at Man City was followed by massive wins over Chelsea, Cardiff, Man Utd and West Brom to secure their top flight status for another season.


It is also only the second time in Premier League history that a team who sat bottom on Christmas Day have gone on to escape the drop, with West Brom having done so in 2005.


Speaking to the Daily Star, O’Shea said: “You can't keep changing your managers. Gus is a young, hungry manager who's learnt his trade. He's been a No 2 along the way who has taken a step up and done very well.


“He has good ideas that he sticks to when he could easily have abandoned them but he's stuck to his guns. He's very controlled and passionate as well, which is the South American coming through.


“It's fairly clear we should stick with the current manager. And if it can be less volatile next year than it was this season, that will definitely help.”


Poyet arrived at the club in October following the dismissal of former West Ham striker Paolo Di Canio, who had taken the reins just six months previously.
