After criticism from supporters and pundits about a lack of quality in the Sunderland squad, Black Cats boss Gus Poyet has said the recruitment isn’t down to him, reports BBC
Sunderland are flirting with relegation this season, and have won only two games from 16. The North-East club have only lost one game from their last seven, however, but a lack of goals is leading to criticism of the transfer policy with a squad in need of attacking talent. Poyet has said that side is not down to him.
“I am a head coach. I want more quality. Do I think I’ll get it? I don’t know. That side is down to recruitment. It is clear what we need to do. So, if you ever get the chance to speak to anyone on the recruitment side and ask them about it, you are lucky. If you don’t, don’t ask me,” said Poyet.
