Sunderland fans react to Jack Ross sacking

Jack Ross has been sacked as the manager of Sunderland – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter have reacted with great positivity to the update.

The Black Cats have confirmed on their official website on Tuesday afternoon that they have terminated the contract of the 43-year-old.

He has been at the Stadium of Light since May 2018 and his team lost in the League One play-off final last season to Charlton Athletic, as well as in the EFL Trophy final to Portsmouth.

Sunderland currently sit sixth in the league table after the opening 11 league games and that has forced the club into dismissing him from his position.

He arrived in the North East with a decent reputation after his spell in Scotland with St Mirren, but he was unable to earn promotion back to the Championship and his last result in charge of Sunderland was a 2-0 defeat away to Lincoln City at the weekend.

A selection of Sunderland supporters on social media have expressed their delight with the exit of Ross and view it as a smart decision by the club.

All eyes will now turn onto who will be his successor and assistant manager James Fowler will take temporary charge in the meantime.
