Sunderland owner Ellis Short has insisted he will make the best decision for the club as he attempts to find a successor to Paolo Di Canio.
– Sunderland chairman Ellis Short
We now have a very important decision to make.
Our only consideration in making that decision is what is best for the club.
In doing so, we feel the weight of the entire city and beyond, along with the history of this massive football club.
The appointment of a replacement head coach is our priority and I urge you to ignore the speculation in the media about the selection process, because most of it is completely wrong.
