The 2016-17 season of the Premier League kicked off on August 13 of 2016 but it wasn’t until November 5 when Sunderland was able to secure their first league victory as it took the team of David Moyes almost 3 months to do it.
The former Three Lions manager lost his “dream job” after just 67 days in charge.
English Premier League club Sunderland are reportedly open to signing former Liverpool midfielder Joao Carlos Teixeira, reports say.
The 23-year old player moved to Portugal during the summer. He has found it difficult to break into the first team, hence the links back to England. The reports say the Portugal international is willing to take a loan deal that will bring him back to England.
Former Manchester United youngster Adnan Januzaj scored the winner as David Moyes supervised his first victory since taking over the helms at Sunderland.
They played Shrewsbury in the second round of the EFL Cup, with their opponents giving them a tough time before breaking. The Black Cats revel in te win as it comes in the middle of an injury crisis at the club. The defence is the most hit of the departments in the squad.
Adnan Januzaj is reported to have handed in a transfer request to leave the club this summer.
According to Daily Mail, the Red Devils winger, who is only 21 years, wants more from his career after making a big entry into the Premier League but not being able to continue. The player is a product of the Anderlecht youth academy, and he joined Red Devils at the age of 16.
DeAndre Yedlin says that Sunderland manager Sam Allardyce should receive a lot of praise for the club staying in the Premier League.
Sam Allardyce has enhanced his reputation as a great manager after helping Sunderland avoid relegation by the skin of their teeth.
Sam Allardyce reckons because of his players being more experienced in dealing with the relegation scenarios, it gives them the advantage over the other teams who are in danger of getting out of Premiership.
As per Allardyce, the Black Cats have been on brink of demotion successively in last few seasons and it’s always this time of the season that they have picked themselves up and have achieved that one dominating result which has changed it around for them.
The international break is not something that managers seem to approve of and this is becoming evident as each season passes by and more coaches are revealing their disgust.
The main problem about the international break is that the players have to leave their clubs for a few weeks and practice as well as play friendly matches with their respective national football team. There is one huge dilemma that the players experience when playing with their national sides and it’s the fact that injury is something which seems to always affect them.
Sunderland secured a surprising 2-1 victory over Manchester United on February 13th and Sam Allardyce took the chance to express just how important it was for him and his team to win the game and it represented more than just 3 points.
