Do not compare me to Di Canio - Poyet

Sunderland's new head coach Gus Poyet says he does not want to be compared to the club's previous manager Paolo Di Canio, who was sacked in September after only 13 games.

The former Brighton boss has joined Sunderland on a two-year deal and said that he needs the players to "commit" and to "believe" if they are to survive relegation.

The Black Cats are bottom of the Premier League and the only side in the division without a win.
