‘Class being rich’, ‘Worries me’ – Many Sunderland fans react as club announces further Kyril Louis-Dreyfus changes



Sunderland have announced four new appointments to their board of directors as new owner Kyril Louis-Dreyfus continues to make changes at the club, which has drawn an interesting reaction from many Black Cats fans.

The Frenchman completed his takeover of the club earlier this year bringing Stewart Donald’s three-year tenure to an end.

Kyril Louis-Dreyfus has made a number of changes at Sunderland already but yesterday it was announced that four new directors had been appointed to the North East club’s board.

Juan Sartori, Maurice Louis-Dreyfus, Simon Vumbaca are the four new appointments and will support the club’s current executive team “in carrying out the club’s long-term strategic objectives on and off the pitch, whilst further strengthening and underpinning the foundations put in place throughout the first part of 2021”.

In the announcement, Kyril Louis-Dreyfus noted that he was delighted to welcome the new appointments to the board.

He added: “This is an exciting period for Sunderland AFC and these appointments represent the culmination of a detailed and thorough process to identify a board that not only respects SAFC’s rich heritage and core values, but also brings the experience, creativity and dynamism required to bring sustainable and lasting success to the club.”
