‘Always felt Stryjek deserved a chance’: Fans react to Sunderland's retained list

Sunderland have released their summer retained list with four big names leaving the Stadium of Light.

Wednesday, 12th June 2019, 06:11 am
Adam Matthews has been released by Sunderland.

Adam Matthews, Robin Ruiter, Max Stryjek and Luke Molyneux are free to depart Wearside, leaving Jack Ross without a second and third choice goalkeeper – a fact which hasn’t gone unnoticed by Black Cats supporters.

Many beleive Poland youth international stopper Stryjek deserved a chance to shine after a decent spell on loan at chairman Stewart Donald’s former club Eastleigh in the National League.

Others were v see 21-year-old Bishop Auckland-born winger Molyneux leave the club whilst a few were left scratching their heads at why defender Glenn Loovens had been kept on by Sunderland. Here’s how you reacted to the news:

@Squealer66: “Molyneaux was a shock. It will be interesting to see what Embleton does, but as expected I think.”
