Max Power has sent a classy message to Sunderland fans after the midfielder sealed a return to former club Wigan Athletic.

Wednesday, 16th June 2021, 7:44 pm

The 27-year-old moved to Wearside from the Latics in the summer of 2018 and went on to make 136 appearances.

He was captain when Lee Johnson’s side lifted the Papa John’s Trophy at Wembley in March but was released after the Black Cats failed to claim League One promotion at the third time of asking.

Nevertheless, Power still holds Sunderland fans in high regard, as he looks forward to visiting the Stadium of Light as an opposition player next season.
