'Is he trying to ruin North East football?': Sunderland fans stunned as ex-Newcastle United boss contacts club
Ex-England, Middlesbrough and Newcastle United boss Steve McClaren today made contact with Sunderland over the club’s vacant manager position – according to reports.
Chairman Stewart Donald made the decision to sack Jack Ross earlier this week, leaving the North East club without a manager.
McClaren, now 46-years-old, has seen his stock fall considerably since a decent five-year stint as Boro boss between 2001 and 2006 after disastrous spells with England, Newcastle United and most recently QPR.
And it’s safe to say Sunderland fans were not best pleased to hear the news that McClaren had made contact with Sunderland. Scroll down to see how YOU reacted.
