Sunderland speak with Brighton chief Barber about Poyet
Sunderland have spoken to Brighton chiefs about managerial candidate Gus Poyet.
The Sunday Mirror says the Black Cats' chief executive Margaret Byrne approached Brighton counterpart Paul Barber for a warts and all account on Poyet.
Albion chief Barber is part of the board who controversially sacked 45-year-old Uruguayan Poyet at the end of last season.
And Barber was also executive director at Tottenham when Poyet lost his job as assistant manager as part of the shake-up that saw Juande Ramos axed.
