With the takeover complete, attention now turns to the vacant Sunderland manager’s position. Here is a look at the currently candidates.
Sunderland currently sit bottom of the Championship; however, due to the squad Chris Coleman inherited and the lack of funds he has been given, he should not be blamed for their position.
Things have not worked out for Sunderland's Jack Rodwell. The club have offered to cancel his contract but the player has refused to walk away form £70k per week. Should he do the right thing for himself and the club and leave?
