New Sunderland manager Gus Poyet has threatened to quit the club if he doesn’t have full control over transfers in the future.
The Black Cats have had a terrible time as of late due to the poor start in the Premier League and also the sacking of Paulo Di Canio.
The Italian manager signed 14 new players in the Summer, but after losing his job at The Stadium of Light, he revealed that none of the players were his top-targets and they were wanted by Director of Football Roberto De Fanti and chief scout Valentino Angeloni.
Now it is Poyet at the helm and he has already laid down the law by saying ‘I will sign who I want’.
He said: ‘We talked about a position the other day and considered four players. I picked two. It was simple. One of the other two was a definite no. If that one is coming, I won’t be here.
‘The player has to be the right one for me. If not, I’m not going to accept it.
‘I’ve told him my opinions about everybody and I’ve told him what I think we should be looking for.
‘For me, so far, there are no problems. I am used to his system. The connection and the communication has been great.
‘Now, the best way for everything is to wait until the transfer window and to see what we do and how we do it and then you analyse. If it’s good, fine. If not, then you need to sort it out.
‘I’m excited to wait for the transfer window, because that’s when you can see whether it’s working.
‘I knew what the situation was and I accepted it, and so far I have got no complaints, but to prove it to everybody we need to wait until we get through at least one transfer window.’
