Poyet amazed by commitment of Sunderland's off contract players

Sunderland boss Gus Poyet hailed the commitment of his players after victory over Manchester United.

After the match, Poyet paid tribute to on-loan Santiago Vergini, Marcus Alonso and Fabio Borini, goalscorer Sebastian Larsson and Jack Colback, who are out of contract in the summer.

"As we stand today, Santiago Vergini doesn't have a contract, Marcos Alonso is going back to Fiorentina, Seb Larsson and Jack Colback don't have contracts, Fabio Borini is going back to Liverpool," Poyet explained.

"But the players, they don't want to go down. They want to fight for their lives and we defended an incredible manner."
