Vicente slates Poyet's managerial style

Gus Poyet seems to be a popular appointment as Sunderland manager, but one of his former Brighton players described him as "the worst person" in football last month.

Ex-Spanish international Vicente, who spent last season on the south coast, does not rate Poyet's top flight credentials.

I do not know if he could manage in the Premier League. I have my doubts. He is the worst person I have come across in football. He is a selfish person, very egocentric. I say that because this is how I feel. If you miss with a shot in training he makes fun — that is unacceptable.
