Sunderland fans have weighed in via social media on what has been the ‘worst’ moment of owner Stewart Donald’s reign.
Latest news coming out of the Stadium of Light is that current and controversial owner Stewart Donald could sell Sunderland without repaying a £20m debt.
The report, which is likely to anger Sunderland fans, is just another moment under Donald’s era that will see his intensions assessed.
Having suffered relegation from the Premier League down to League One in recent seasons, something which was well documented on Netflix series Sunderland till I die, the Black Cats are on the verge of not gaining a play-off place, with the remainder of the season still up in the air.
Can you remember which Sunderland manager signed each of these 15 players? Have a go now!
Donald took over from former owner Ellis Short, and the report goes on to claim he used broadcast income that is paid to relegated clubs from the Premier League to finance the move.
With that money yet to be repaid, Donald is now attempted to sell the club, and fans are now growing inpatient.
Reacting to a question posed by Football League World’s Ben Crump via Facebook group Sunderland AFC fans group which read: What has been the worst moment of Donald’s ownership?”, fans gave their opinion.
Many picked out the decision not to sack Scottish manager Jack Ross after losing the play-off final last season, later being sacked the club last October.
