‘Criminal’, ‘A huge miss’ – Many Sunderland fans rage at club decision over 25 y/o



Former Sunderland captain George Honeyman has discussed his summer departure, which has left many Black Cats fans raging at the club’s decision to sell him. 

The 25-year-old progressed through the academy and became a key player for the North East club, taking the captain’s armband and proving an integral player in their run to the League One play-off final last season.

Last summer he made a shock exit from the Stadium of Light, moving to Hull City in a deal worth a reported £400,000.

Speaking on the latest episode of Roker Rapport, Honeyman discussed his departure and revealed that the club’s treatment of him was what drove his departure.

The midfielder explained that the club accepted the offer from the Tigers and looked unlikely to extend his contract with the club, which ran to the summer of 2020, which left him feeling he had little choice.

He added: “I wasn’t happy with how it ended, I can’t lie, but that’s how it was. That’s the business side of footy, that’s the ruthlessness of it.”

Honeyman joined the Black Cats academy at the age of 10 and made 97 appearances for the Sunderland senior side before his exit.
