Andy Cole and Trevor Sinclair react on Twitter to Sunderland’s survival

Sunderland’s goalless draw with Arsenal on Wednesday means that they will remain in the Premier League next season.

Andy Cole has taken to social networking site Twitter to give his reaction to Sunderland’s survival in the Premier League.

The Black Cats retained their top flight status for the 2015-16 campaign with a goalless draw with Arsenal away from home at the Emirates Stadium in North London on Wednesday evening.

Cole, a former Sunderland striker, was following the match, and he was delighted to see his old club escape the drop to the Championship.

Also watching the game on Wednesday was Trevor Sinclair, a former Queens Park Rangers and West Ham United winger.

Sinclair was also delighted with the performance produced by the Sunderland players and urged the club to keep Dick Advocaat as their manager next season.

Advocaat was appointed the Sunderland manager in mid-March following the dismissal of Gus Poyet.

There were doubts whether the Dutchman would be able to keep the Black Cats in the Premier League, but he has done exactly that.

The 67-year-old was emotional after the draw with Arsenal, which showed just how much he cares for the club and how much it meant to him to rescue them from relegation.
