Sunderland manager Gus Poyet tells his players not to worry about possible points deduction [Video]

Sunderland look likely to escape any points deduction for their illegal fielding of Ji Dong-won, much to the relief of manager Gus Poyet.

The Uruguayan coach maintained in yesterday’s presser that come what may, the players shouldn’t worry about it, that it’s nothing to do with them and that they should keep focused on what’s happening on the pitch.

Poyet also moved to distance himself from the controversy, reminding the press that this all happened before he arrived at the club.
