Sunderland fans are seriously worried, after seeing John O’Shea become the bookies’ favourite to take over at the Stadium of Light.

O’Shea’s odds were slashed last night, and he became an odds-on shout to become Sunderland’s next manager, after a series of bets.

The centre-back has absolutely no managerial experience, but has been at Sunderland since 2011, so knows the club well.

However, Sunderland fans appear to be unanimous in thinking that placing O’Shea in charge would be a terrible idea.

The Daily Express have suggested that Sunderland aren't considering O'Shea, but he still remains a short-price with the bookies

Sunderland parted company with Simon Grayson in midweek, after a 3-3 draw with Bolton Wanderers.
