Sunderland fans react on Twitter to Giaccherini injury news

Sunderland Fans

Sunderland supporters have been left disappointed after learning that Emanuele Giaccherini will sit out the remainder of the season.

Sunderland fans have been left largely disappointed after the news broke on Wednesday that Emanuele Giaccherini will miss the remainder of the season through injury.

Gus Poyet confirmed to the Sunderland Echo this morning that Giaccherini will remain sidelined with an ankle problem for the rest of the campaign.

It is a blow for Sunderland that they can ill afford, with Poyet needing everyone available for selection as they fight for Premier League survival.

Although Giaccherini has not had the desired impact at the Stadium of Light, he has shown signs of class when on the pitch and would have provided Poyet with another attacking option as the campaign hots up.

The Italian had the versatility to cover a number of positions and his direct running meant that he could have been a useful weapon.

Poyet will have to make do without him, though, and Sunderland supporters are disappointed that they have still not seen the best of the 29-year-old.

Here is the some of the reaction to Giaccherini's injury setback from Black Cats supporters on social media site Twitter.
