Any manager would be pissed if he lost 8-0 in a football match, and Gus Poyet certainly is.
Poyet saw his Sunderland team get demolished by Southampton, and was not the least happy about it.
“It’s the most embarrassing time I’ve had on a football pitch, without any doubt,” he said after the game.
“I feel sorry for the supporters. I think we had created something between the team and the supporters. As you know, it’s a long trip and they deserved better.”
The visitors fell behind courtesy of a bizarre own goal from Santiago Vergini on 12 minutes, the defender finding his own net from the edge of the area to set the tone for a dismal Sunderland display.
Graziano Pelle went on to score twice, while another own goal – this time from Liam Bridcutt – and further strikes from Jack Cork, Dusan Tadic, Victor Wanyama and Sadio Mane sent Sunderland spinning to their heaviest Premier League defeat.
