Michael Laudrup: 'Gus Poyet can turn things around'

Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup says that there is plenty of time for Gus Poyet to turn things around at rock-bottom Sunderland.

Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup has said that there is no reason for new Sunderland boss Gus Poyet to be panicking despite the Black Cats being rooted to the bottom of the Premier League.

The Welsh team inflicted a 4-0 defeat upon the Uruguayan in his first game on charge of the North East outfit on Saturday, but the Dane said that there is still a long way to go.

"There are still 30 games to go, if you suddenly get two wins and six points you are right there," Sky Sports News quotes the 49-year-old as saying.

"I know in this moment right now it seems very difficult for them, but sometimes you just need a little bit of luck in one game and you can win it 1-0 and you are back again.

"You see it with a lot of teams in different competitions. I always say that things are decided during the last two months of the season. I have never seen a team win the title or get relegated in October, November or December."

Sunderland face Newcastle United at the Stadium of Light next Sunday.
