Gus Poyet expects to stay with Sunderland next season.
Asked if he expected to be in charge in August, he said: "Yes," before adding with a smile: "You are scaring me now. What do you know that I don't know?
"The rumours are natural, there are so many rumours all the time. But that means you are doing something special or you are being recognised for something, whatever it is.
"It could be the way your team plays, or it could be the achievement that you made or it could be that before, I didn't have on my CV Barclays Premier League experience and now I do in a very difficult situation."
