Poyet comments 'born out of frustration'

Gus Poyet's comments after Sunderland's shock FA Cup defeat to Bradford City were 'born out of frustration', according to Sunderland Echo reporter Chris Young.

The Uruguayan told media after the Sunday's 2-0 defeat at Valley Parade:

The problem is you, not me. If you write what I say the fans would be on my side but because you write what you want we've got problems.

If we close Sunderland and we put a China wall around the city it would be fantastic. Now when we let you get in and you go out and say what you want then we've got a problem beating ourselves.

So I would invite every Sunderland fan and people who cares about the club not to listen to any one of you. Only to me and between ourselves.

– Gus Poyet, Sunderland AFC Head Coach

Young says Poyet could be frustrated after his side's recent results.
