Vito Mannone, Bolo Zenden, Djibril Cisse and Victor Anichebe congratulate Sunderland on Instagram
Former Sunderland players have been quick to congratulate the club following yesterday’s cup final win.
Lee Johnson’s side defeated Tranmere Rovers in the final of the Papa John’s Trophy ending a 47 year and 10 months Wembley losing streak in the process.
Lynden Gooch grabbed the only goal of the game following a superb through ball by Aiden McGeady.
And there was plenty of reaction from former players to the win.
Bolo Zenden said on one of Sunderland’s Instagram posts last night: “It’s coming home...”
The former Barcelona and Liverpool winger also commented heart, trophy and clapping emojis on pictures of Grant Leadbitter, Chris Maguire and McGeady and Gooch.
Ex-striker Victor Anichebe also sent his congratulations to the American academy graduate.
He said: “Well done @lyndengooch buzzing for you and the team.”
Former Black Cat Vito Mannone also posted a handclap emoji in response to the win, whilst David Meyler and ex-loanee striker Djibril Cisse both posted messages of ‘congrats’ on Sunderland’s official Instagram.
