Lee Johnson has revealed that he believes Sunderland’s takeover ‘is on the right path’ as a decision moves closer.
The Black Cats are in a period of uncertainty as supporters await an announcement with regards to the deal that will see the club come under new majority ownership.
An announcement will see a consortium led by Kyril Louis-Dreyfus and minority shareholder Juan Sartori take full control of the club, while seeing Stewart Donald reduce his shares to a minority stake.
Johnson was quizzed on the proposed deal ahead of the clash with MK Dons, and while he couldn’t give a concrete update, he did state that he thinks that there’s nothing to worry about as a decision looms.
Asked by the Sunderland Echo if there was an update, Johnson said: “To be honest, no.
“I’ve genuinely just concentrated on winning, non-stop, try to give the lads the detail they need and to make sure they are believed in and comfortable.
“All that stuff will take care of itself – even though I truly believe it’s definitely on the right path and it is just dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s.”
