FAN-TASTIC: Gus Poyet celebrates victory in front of the Sunderland fans

GUS Poyet dedicated his side’s dramatic Capital One Cup semi-final win over Manchester United to Sunderland’s long-suffering fans.

The Black Cats won a penalty shoot-out 2-1 after both sides scored at the end of extra-time as the match ended 2-1 to United.

“The feelings are for them,” Poyet told Sky Sports 1, pointing to the visiting fans at Old Trafford

“A difficult season, nothing to enjoy, look at them, they deserve that. Let’s see if we can go one more and win it.”

Sunderland will be rank underdogs in the final against Manchester City, but, having knocked out Chelsea and now United, that is a status Poyet is happy with.

And asked if his side could win, the Uruguayan added: “No doubt, for sure.”

Poyet could scarcely believe how the match had panned out.

“The things that happened today, it’s incredible, but the players have been outstanding. Credit to them,” he said.
