Former Coventry City Manager Chris Coleman has been appointed the new manager of Sunderland.
Coleman has signed a two and a half year deal with The Mackems, who are facing a relegation battle in the Championship.
The former Wales manager, who quit on Friday in order to take over on Wearside, said to the Sunderland club website:
It’s an honour to be appointed the manager of Sunderland AFC and I’m over the moon that the club believes I am the right man.
“The club worked incredibly hard to make sure we were a good fit and to show me the potential that can be achieved here.
“I believe that every person at this football club, every player and every supporter has a part to play in getting us back to where we belong.”
