Sunderland manager Gus Poyet says the supporters need to stay on side, after the Black Cats were booed in their 0-0 draw against Fulham in the FA Cup fourth round, reports BBC
Sunderland have been enduring a difficult season, with the North-East outfit having drawn too many games in all competitions. They weren’t at their best against Fulham recently, and a lot of the fans made their feelings clear by booing the side at the final whistle. Poyet is desperate to keep the fans all united.
“There are plenty of things that we need to change because if not, it’s going to be difficult. “(There’s a) missed connection at the moment with the fans. When we are all together, it’s easier and at the moment, it doesn’t look like that. When the stadium is not happy, the players don’t express themselves. A little bit of understanding and patience, it would be very welcome,” said Poyet.
