Who will replace David Moyes at Sunderland?by Jack Kitson / 22 May 2017, 17:55Tweet
David Moyes has dramatically thrown in the towel at Sunderland after a single season at the helm.
Moyes endured a shocking campaign which proved to be a disastrous fifth spell in management, winning a measly 6 of his 38 Premier League games as rock-bottom Sunderland tumbled down into the Championship.
However, despite his failings Moyes revealed that he'd be staying at Sunderland with the aim of orchestrating an instant return to the top-flight. But, this has proved not to be the case after resigning from his post with the Black Cats.
After departing his post Moyes said:
"I wish the players and my successor well in their efforts towards promotion back to the Premier League"
This leaves Sunderland searching for their seventh manager in four years, with Sam Allardyce, Paoli Di Canio and Martin O'Neill just a few of the gaffers that have come and gone.
In terms of potential replacements the Next Sunderland Manager Market reveals that Ryan Giggs, Nigel Pearson, Sheffield United's Chris Wilder, Hull's Marco Silva, Leeds' Garry Monk, Sunderland's development coach Kevin Ball and even Kevin Phillips some of the early contenders in the betting.
