‘Have a word’ – Plenty of Sunderland fans respond as high-profile name reacts to Black Cats appointment

Published

on

A number of Sunderland fans have been trying to convince Borussia Dortmund’s Jude Bellingham to make a move to the Stadium of Light, following the midfielder’s recent social media activity.

The Blacks Cats announced on Friday that they had completed the appointment of Kristjaan Speakman as the club’s new sporting director.

To take up that role, Speakman has left his long-serving position behind the scenes at Championship side Birmingham City, where he will of course have come into contact with Bellingham, whose breakthrough campaign at St Andrew’s last season earned him a move to Dortmund last summer.

Taking to Twitter to react to news of Sanderson’s move to the north east, Bellingham was complimentary of the appointment, and the work Sanderson has previously done with Birmingham.

That is something that was noticed by plenty of Sunderland supporters, with a number responding to Bellingham’s post by attempting to convince him to reunite with Sanderson at the Stadium of Light in the not too distant future.

Here, we take a look at what some of those supporters had to say.
