GUS POYET has emerged as a surprise contender to take over from Steve Clarke at Kilmarnock.

SunSport understands the Uruguayan is among a number of candidates the Rugby Park club are considering for their vacant manager’s post.

Killie owner Billy Bowie has been inundated with applications following Clarke’s departure to Scotland — and will begin the interview process this week when he returns from holiday.

Poyet has an extensive CV having been in charge at Brighton, Sunderland, AEK Athens, Bordeaux, Real Betis and Chinese side Shanghai Shenhua.

The 51-year-old is a former Chelsea team-mate of Clarke, as was Roberto Di Matteo, who remains the bookies’ favourite to land the Kilmarnock post.


Poyet is desperate to get back into management after being sacked by Bordeaux last September for publicly criticising the club over the sale of a player.
The South American has also thrown his hat into the ring for a number of posts down south including the Swansea job.
Poyet has links to Kilmarnock after arranging for his son, Diego, to spend a couple of months training with the Ayrshire outfit last season when he was between clubs.
