Stoke City winger James McClean congratulates Charlton Athletic on winning against his former club Sunderland.

Stoke City winger James McClean played for Sunderland for two years from 2011 until 2013, but the Republic of Ireland international probably thinks that it was a mistake.

Back in November 2017, the former Wigan Athletic and West Bromwich Albion winger stated on Twitter that he is ashamed to have played for Sunderland.

McClean made the comment in response to a fan of the Black Cats who stated that he was ashamed that he played for Sunderland.

On Sunday afternoon, the Black Cats were in action in the League One playoff final against Charlton Athletic.

Although Sunderland started the game strongly and scored the opening goal, it was the Addicks who won it 2-1 and have clinched promotion to the Championship for the 2019-20 campaign.

Stoke winger McClean was following the match, and the 30-year-old has congratulated Charlton on Twitter on winning the final and getting promotion to the Championship.

Meanwhile, Accrington Stanley owner Andy Holt has given his take on the final result on Twitter and has positive words for Sunderland.
