Gus Poyet: Score from midfield

During his playing days Gus Poyet had a knack of infiltrating the opposition's penalty box undetected and meeting a cross to devastating effect.

In the colours of Real Zaragoza, Chelsea and Tottenham the Uruguayan rippled the net from midfield with the regularity of a striker.

After hanging  up this boots Poyet moved into management, taking up right-hand man roles at Swindon Town, Leeds United and Spurs, before he took up the reins at Brighton and Sunderland.

'The Radio' took time out of his busy schedule to talk to FourFourTwo Performance about the art of scoring from midfield.
