Martin O’Neill rejects advances from Sunderland

As the pre-season days get closer and closer, Sunderland fans are getting more anxious on who and when the new Sunderland manager, and when he’d be announced. Many fans are hoping for an experienced manager that has previously worked with the club, to know his way around. Of course, that put Martin O’Neill, back on the table, after he was sacked earlier this May, with Di Canio being his successor. Nevertheless, Martin O’Neill, currently taking a ‘short’ sabbatical has rejected advances, according to BBC Sport.

The Sunderland chairman, disappointed, wrote in the club’s official website,"Martin (O’Neill) has officially declined our offer we put in the table, as he thought that the club were not good enough for him, and didn't feel adequate over his first spell here in Sunderland. Myself and the board members, along with the staff inside the club will try to find a suitable replacement that will please the fans and most importantly us."

Ellis Short

The Sunderland chairman explaining why O’Neill rejected him and his club.

With the media keeping a close eye on Sunderland, pictures of managers were leaked, with Di Matteo shaking hands with Ellis Short on one. Hector Cuper, who is booked as the least to take over the reins of Sunderland, was seen in the area, along with Gus Poyet, who is currently jobless, after being fired at Brighton Hove Albion, after a discussion with the club.

Hector Cuper

The former Racing manager is the 'long-shot bet' contender for the available post at Sunderland.
Not sure I have ever heard of Cuper? But anyway, great well written update!
Hector Cuper imo :D
Anyone but that Poyet fool :P
Ermahgerd, Aaron does not know Hector Cuper?! :O Arrest him nao!

Anyway, another quality update Pauker :D
@Aaron: *sigh*

@Tahir: Defo ;)

@Justice: K den

@Walter: Ikr?! Thanks mate.

Sunderland Appoint Poyet

After weeks of looking for a manager, Sunderland chairman, Ellis Short, has brought one that will definitely please the fans and the board alike, after Poyet jumped over Di Matteo on the shortlist, after impressing the board. Even though Di Matteo and Sunderland negotiations were close, Poyet was the #1 target all the time, according to a club source.

Gus Poyet

The former Brighton manager will take the reins of the club.

On his new job, Poyet said,"It's a huge challenge but one I am excited about and I am grateful for the opportunity to manage in the Premier League.” As the journalists fired questions at the new Sunderland manager, he answered one on his squad by saying,”At the moment, I’ve not coordinated a single training, so it would be unfair to rule anyone out of the squad, without looking at them. But, eventually, some players might be leaving, or some on loan. What I really don't want is players doing the Andre Villas Boas at Chelsea, which is screwing me over. I'd like to give the opportunity to the players to understand how I am. I'd like things said to my face.”

Ellis Short

The Sunderland chairman announcing Poyet's appointment.

"We analysed a wide range of candidates and believe that Gus's track record, experience, commitment and passion make him the right man to take us forward. Hopefully, the fans, along with team itself will be pleased with the recent appointment." said chairman Ellis Short.
