Sunderland boss Gus Poyet has denied reports he is ready to quit the club.

The Black Cats are currently rock bottom of the Premier League table, and their problems look set to continue when they take on title-chasing Manchester City on Wednesday night.

Sunderland are 1.63 to finish bottom, and Poyet has already admitted that his side will need a ‘miracle’ if they are to avoid the drop.

In their final six games of the season they face City, Chelsea, Cardiff, Manchester United, West Brom and Swansea.

Their League Cup form showed Poyet’s men have the ability to shock teams in the division but they will need to vastly improve after a number of disappointing performances.

They are seven points off safety, and their only saving grace may be their two games in hand. Poyet’s side will need to start picking up points quickly if they are to stay up and the 46-year-old has refused to quit the Stadium of Light just because the going has got tough.

He said: “It looks to me that people are expecting me to walk out. I don’t know why they have that impression. I’m not going to quit.

“The more solutions I find, the easier my job is going to be and I want that job to be as easy as possible.

“It’s not my way or nothing. Here we are talking about solutions for the club and maybe my way is not right, and then I am the problem.

“If I am the problem, it would be nice if somebody told me and that’s it. I have got no problem with that.”
