Sunderland boss Gus Poyet will welcome the appointment of new football director Lee Congerton.
The former Chelsea chief scout is set to quit his role as Hamburgâ€™s technical director and join the Black Cats this summer.
â€śHaving a sporting director is normal all over the world,â€ť said Poyet, who has been assured by Short that he will have the final word on new signings.
â€śHere, the word can be seen as the devil but that does not have to be the case.
â€śThe most important thing is the relationship between the manager and that person. It needs to be spot on with both heading in the same direction, otherwise it wonâ€™t work. For me it is natural and it is something I donâ€™t worry about at all.â€ť
