Poyet: Best Yet To Come From Striker

Matthew Lewis

Gus Poyet has said we won't see the best of Nacho Scocco until next season.

Gus Poyet believes that Sunderland won't see the best of Argentine striker Nacho Scocco until next season as he continues to struggle to get up to the pace of English football.

Speaking with the Sunderland Echo, Poyet explained;

I don't know how many good games we can get out of Nacho Scocco before the season ends.

I had hoped that the final 10 games of the season we would start seeing the best of him after he joined us in January.

He joined us in what is the close season for him and it has been difficult for us at this stage to get him full match fitness and sharpness.

What I am looking forward to is seeing Scocco next season after he has had a full pre-season behind him.

Certainly so far Scocco hasn't quite lived up to the billing given to him upon arrival, and has in his cameo appearances tended to look a little lost on the pitch.

The problem is we're very short of options in the striking department, with Fabio Borini the only one who ever looks likely to get a goal often forced out on to the wing.

Scocco may well be one for next season. You just wonder what league that will be in, and if it's the Championship will Scocco even stick around to be part of it.
