New Sunderland boss Poyet branded "egocentric" and "selfish person"

New Sunderland boss Gus Poyet has been slammed by former Valencia star Vicente.

Vicente, who played 38 times for his country and is currently without a club, said Poyet reneged on an agreement to allow him to return to Spain as his four-year-old daughter had not settled in England.

After leaving Brighton this summer, Vicente is quoted by the Daily Express: "He is the worst person I have come across in football. For example, he deceived me when he said I could go and then he didn't let me. I was four months out injured and he wasn't capable of coming up and asking how I was.

"For me he is a selfish person, very egocentric. I say that because it's how I feel.

"I won't talk badly about my team-mates because they have been fantastic with me. What I think is unacceptable is that the manager makes fun of his players.

"I've seen things here that I have never seen in my career. If you miss with a shot in training, he makes fun. For me, that is unacceptable in football."
