Frustrated Dick Advocaat could quit his post at struggling Sunderland

Jack Kitson by Jack Kitson / 25 August 2015, 09:29

Dick AdvocaatDick Advocaat's future at Sunderland has been hurled into doubt after he criticised the club's lack of activity in the transfer market. The Dutchman has been left frustrated at the minimal funds he has been handed so far this summer, and with only a week to go until the transfer window slams shut, a failure to bolster his squad could result in the former Rangers boss leaving his post.

Sack Race Favourite

Advocaat has never been relegated as a manager, and he is desperate not to shatter this record. However, should chairman Ellis Short fail to hand him more funds, then reports are rife that the 67-year-old could even throw in the towel and become the first departure of the Premier League Sack Race (currently the 21/20 favourite with Sky Bet).

August Agony

Sunderland are yet to record a victory so far this season, picking up just one point from their opening three Premier League games, leaving the club 19th in the table. August is definitely not a popular Premier League month for the Mackems, who haven't seen their side win during this time of the year in a whopping 10 attempts, dating back five years.

A change of fortunes in the League Cup...?

The Black Cats will be hoping that their fortunes change tonight in the Capital One Cup tonight when they host League Two outfit Exeter City at the Stadium of Light.

Advocaat's troops head into the match as the odds-on 8/15 favourites (Betfred) to progress through to the third round in 90 minutes, whereas the visitors could be worth considering at 6/1 (Bet365) to spring a surprise, while a draw at the end of normal time can be found at 7/2 (Bet Victor).
