“We are very excited about the appointment, and look forward to Steven building on the impressive foundations he has laid at Argyle.
“Schuey is a popular figure at Home Park, and his tactical knowledge, man-management and motivational skills are evident in his day-to-day work.
“We believe he has great potential, and is the obvious choice to provide continuity at a time of great promise at the club.”
“More than that, though, Steven fits the profile of the kind of young, forward-thinking Manager we want at Argyle, and no prospective candidate has a better understanding of the club, and squad, than him.
“Of course, we thank Ryan for his achievements as Manager, and we wish him all the best for the future.”
Sunderland sit one place below the Pilgrims but are currently only separated by goal difference ahead of a huge set of midweek League One fixtures, starting tonight when Lee Johnson’s side welcome Morecambe to the Stadium of Light.
