BLACK Cats boss Gus Poyet took time away from the training pitch to take part in a special Q&A with business professionals.

The Uruguayan was at the Tip Off Lunch event, in which he chatted with members of the Foundation of Light’s Corporate Membership scheme.

Hosted by Sky Sports News presenter David Craig, the head coach fielded a range of questions, covering topics such as his hopes for the current season and taking the club to Wembley during his first season in charge.

Poyet said: “I am very proud to be able to help Foundation of Light by taking part in the Tip Off Lunch event. Since joining Sunderland I have been very impressed by how Foundation of Light uses football to change people’s lives and it is great to be able to support them in this way.”

Foundation of Light chief executive officer Lesley Spuhler added: “We are very grateful to Gus for giving up his time to meet with those who support us.

“Corporate fund-raising allows us to make such a difference to people in the local community and his appearance and the ongoing support of the football club is a big part of that.”
