Couhig caused a stir earlier this week after his dig at Sunderland surfaced on Tuesday evening.

The two clubs are set to face off at Wembley in the League One play-off final at Wembley with promotion to the Championship on the line.

The Chairboys boss penned a 388-word plea to Wycombe Wanderers fans to support their team at Wembley and also included some bizarre comments regarding the Black Cats.

He said: “We know that the last step in this journey will not be easy. We will again be the underdogs to those who ‘know football’. The supporters of the team that is a Netflix show will try to intimidate us with their superior number of fans.”

But now, Sunderland coach David Preece has altered his bio on social media in what appears to be a nod towards Couhig’s ill-timed dig ahead of the game against Wycombe on Saturday.

Preece’s bio now reads: “Coach at Netflix club @SunderlandAFC. Writer.”

Sunderland have confirmed as a first-team goalkeeping coach back in August 2021.

Preece, who started his playing career on Wearside, had been working with the Black Cats throughout pre-season before replacing Lee Butler in the role.
