The name of the former coach of Sunderland tops the list of candidates to replace Traianos Dellas. Discussions between AEK and Gustavo Poyet according to what the source said to SDNA: "Yes, there are contacts. Discussions have been made in a good atmosphere. He is interested in the prospect of Greece and AEK specifically. I would like him to come, but there is still some details to be be clarified immediately. He hopes to be in Athens soon, if all goes well, "
It seems that articles wanting former Sunderland manager to be among the candidates to replace Mourinho at Chelsea, have no basis, given especially that the "blues", in which Poyet played for four years, want a coach more experienced in the Premier League, despite the fact that he is particularly dear to the fans. Moreover, the Uruguayan, after his removal from Sunderland, said he wants to try coaching in another European championship expressing his desire to work under different conditions. If AEK can satisfy him and ... offer this new experience, remains to be seen...
Poyet began his coaching career in 2009 in Brighton, he stayed until 2013, and that same year he was appointed by Sunderland, where he remained until last March.
