Report: Sunderland prepared to take risky approach over new manager

It could be weeks before Sunderland appoint their new manager according to one report.

The Chronicle has reported that it may be the end of June before Sunderland make an appointment over their next manager.

Sunderland are searching for a new boss after Dick Advocaat announced that he wouldn’t be staying at the club, but the Black Cats are reportedly in no rush to make a decision.

The paper states that the club will go through a ‘thorough’ process as they decide who will become their next manager and there are positives and negatives to the apparent approach.

The positive is that Sunderland aren’t showing a weakness through panic and the right, sensible appointment should help the side move forward.

The paper suggests that caution is the favoured method as the club wants to avoid a repeat of last season, where the team was scrapping away at the wrong end of the Premier League table for the majority of the campaign.

The major negative is that the longer the club waits in June to make a decision, the less time a new manager has to make decisions before the next transfer window opens on July 1.
