VIDEO EXCLUSIVE: Scholes makes Poyet's dream team

The Sunderland boss picks his ideal XI from the best players he played with, or against, during his 16-year career

Sunderland boss Gus Poyet has put Manchester United greats such as Paul Scholes and Peter Schmeichel in his dream team.

The 46-year-old enjoyed a career that most players would be proud of, playing in Uruguay, France, Spain and England.

He helped his country to Copa America victory in 1995, tasted Uefa Cup and Uefa Cup Winners’ Cup success with Chelsea.

The current Black Cats manager played with, and against, some of the world’s best during his playing days, too, and Goal asked him to name his ultimate XI from those he played with and against.

He takes his side into the second leg of their Capital One Cup semi-final on Wednesday holding a 2-1 advantage over Manchester United and, fittingly, two of Old Trafford’s greatest players feature in Gus’ team. But who else made the cut?
