Gus Poyet appointed new Sunderland boss

Gus Poyet has been handed the task of dragging Sunderland out of relegation trouble after being named as Paolo Di Canio's successor.

The 45-year-old Uruguayan has signed a two-year deal and will take charge with immediate effect, the club has confirmed.

The former Brighton manager's initial challenge will be to secure a first Barclays Premier League win of the season with the Black Cats currently lying at the foot of the table with just one point from their first seven games, a return which leaves them six points adrift of safety.
