Poyet: ‘We need to hope Suarez gets ill tonight, without him Liverpool would be mid-table’ [Video]
Gus Poyet ain’t nicknamed ‘Radio’ for nothing; he likes to talk, a lot.
The Sunderland boss takes his side to Anfield tomorrow, and well aware as he is of his compatriot Luis Suarez’s threat, the Uruguayan coach made a bit of a silly joke, that really doesn’t translate well in text form.
Poyet said (in jest), ‘We need to hope Suarez gets ill tonight. Without him they would probably be in mid-table.’
The above quote isn’t actually on the video below, but it’s been confirmed by those present at the presser.
After Solskjaer’s slight at the weekend, another one bites the dust for Liverpool fans.
