Former Sunderland defender Michael Gray has briefly touched on the current situation at the Stadium of Light, calling the club a ‘mess’.
Recent news emerging from the Wearside club is that current owner Stewart Donald could sell Sunderland without repaying a £20m debt.
The Times report the news, which is likely to further upset fans of the club, who have been on tough ride from the Premier League down to League One over the last few years.
Donald took over from former owner Ellis Short, seen on Netflix series Sunderland till I die, but news have since emerged over the takeover, claiming he used broadcast income that is paid to relegated clubs from the Premier League to finance the move.
With thst money yet to be repaid, Donald is now attempted to sell the club, who sit seventh and just outside the play-off places in England’s third tier.
Gray, who played for the club during happier and more successful times, has revealed his thoughts in a brief Twitter message.
Some interesting new coming out of #Safc
Don’t say I didn’t tell you so
We are a MESS

The majority of football fans in England have seen various issues and problems unfold at Sunderland, and it does seem like the club are still on a downward spiral.
Quite who can come in to own the club and turn things around is anyones guess, but one thing is for sure, Donald has lost the patience, what little their is, of the Sunderland fans.
