Profile

Sunderland have recently been sold to a consortium of investors and manager Chris Coleman who replaced the sacked Simon Grayson in November 2017 has now left the club after being "released from his contract", along with his assistant Kit Symons, leaving the Blackcats to start a search for a new manager ready for life in League One.

Sunderland were previously enjoying their longest spell in the Premier League, with the 2016/17 campaign the club's tenth in a row. During that time the Black Cats have only finished in the top-10 just once (2010/11), while they've flirted with relegation on the majority of occasions, especially in recent years

Since returning to the top-flight in 2007 the Mackems have gone through their fair share of managers, including Roy Keane, Ricky Sbragia, Steve Bruce, Martin O'Neill, Paolo Di Canio, Gus Poyet, and Advocaat. This inconsistency has been a major factor in the Wearsiders' failure to challenge for a top-10 place, with chairman Ellis Short coming under fire from fans.
