Former Sunderland player believes the club are appointing the wrong manager



Don Hutchinson believes that Peter Reid should be appointed manager in order to sort out the internal issues.

The former Scottish international played for the Black Cats in the 2000-2001 season, when they finished seventh in the Premier League, as part of an extensive playing career with a number of clubs.

Jack Ross is set to be announced as Sunderland manager as they prepare for life in League One after consecutive relegations, with the fans hoping that the new owners can bring in a period of success.

The 41-year-old managed to get St Mirren promoted to the Scottish Premier League last season, so he has a promising career ahead of him.

The Verdict

Reid was manager during Hutchinson’s brief stint with the club, so he is clearly still loyal to his former manager. However, Reid hasn’t managed in England since 2011 and at all since 2014, so this would be a bizarre move.

The new owners appear to be restructuring the club internally in order to address the internal issues which have seemed to hamper Sunderland over the past few seasons leading to them moving down the divisions. Ross appears to be a promising candidate based on his time with St Mirren and could be the fresh perspective they need to turn the club around.
