Sunderland midfielder Vaughan welcomes Poyet appointment
He has not had a chance to meet his new boss - but is hopeful the appointment can help spark his side's season into life.
Vaughan said: "It's a good appointment. Hopefully he can get us off the bottom of the league and improve on performances from the start of the season.
"I don't know a great deal about Gus but I've spoken to a few players who have played with or worked under him and they have had good things to say.
"It's not been a good start. We've been in the games and in the last two games we have been unlucky. The belief is there and we just need to get a couple of good results then you will see a different side.
"I've not played in too many games so hopefully I can get in the team and get a good run of games, and hopefully we can win some games too. Under Paolo we did some good things, but it's down to the players to improve on the results on the pitch."
