‘Best man for the job,’ ‘Doubt it’ll happen’ – Sunderland fans react to latest managerial links



A number of Sky Bet Championship clubs are still looking for a new manager ahead of the 2017/18 campaign, with Hull City, Middlesbrough and Sunderland among those on the lookout, following their relegations from the Premier League last season.

Middlesbrough and Sunderland have highlighted Garry Monk as a potential target for their respective clubs next season, with the 38-year old in-demand following his departure from Leeds United.

After guiding Leeds to seventh in the Championship last season, it seemed Monk would remain at Elland Road this summer, however, the former Swansea City boss surprised many by handing in his resignation late last month.

Reports are now suggesting that Monk would consider a move to Sunderland this summer, despite interest from elsewhere.

After a disastrous 12-months with David Moyes in the Premier League, most Sunderland’s fans are open to a fresh start under Monk in the second-tier, whilst others doubt his willingness to move to the Stadium of Light.

Here is some reaction to Sunderland’s links with Monk…
