David Moyes Staying At Sunderland

by Jack Kitson / 05 May 2017, 10:46

David Moyes has confirmed that he will remain in charge of Sunderland following talks with the club, who will be playing in the Championship next season after their 10 year spell in the Premier League came to an end.

Moyes’ future at the Black Cats had been in real doubt following a dismal debut campaign which saw Sunderland relegated last weekend with four games still to play, while “Slap Gate” certainly didn’t paint him in a positive light…

Not only was Sunderland’s relegation confirmed after that 1-0 defeat at home to Bournemouth, but their woeful winless record was extended to double figures - during this rotten run they’ve picked up just two points, while their last home win dates back nine games to mid-December.

This summer Moyes, who desperately needs to win the support back of frustrated fans, faces a huge rebuilding job at the Stadium of Light as he bids to orchestrate an instant return to the Premier League.

Sunderland have debts in excess of £110m, but funds will be raised through the likely sales of Jermain Defoe, Jordan Pickford, Fabio Borini, Lamine Kone among others.

Moyes’ record in the transfer market isn’t great - Joleon Lescott, Darren Gibson, and Donald Love to name a few - in fact it’s awful, meaning he’s got to make a statement in the summer.

In the meantime Sunderland will finish the season with games against Hull, Swansea, Arsenal and Chelsea.
