Moyes Leaves Black Cats

David Moyes has called time on his spell as Sunderland manager. The Scotsman took the job last summer, but after a disappointing season decided that following relegation it was time to step down.

He said: “I would like to thank Ellis Short and the board for giving me the opportunity to manage Sunderland and the fans for always being so passionately supportive of their club. “I wish the players and my successor well in their efforts towards promotion back to the Premier League” The Sun

Sunderland Owner Ellis Short also had this to say…

 “I pursued the services of David Moyes for a considerable period prior to his appointment last summer, which makes the announcement of his departure difficult for everyone concerned.
“Having worked tirelessly throughout the campaign to avoid relegation from the Premier League, David has chosen to leave the club without compensation, which is testament to his character.
“We wish David well in the future.” The Sun

The wearsiders now have a busy summer looking for a suitable replacement as they embark on a season in the Championship and what will hopefully end with a return to the Premier League
