Will Sunderland earn promotion next season?





Sunderland will be looking to rebuild and go again next season after failing to clinch promotion via the play-offs for the second time in three seasons under two different managers.

This didn’t stop many Sunderland fans from flocking to the club’s tweet and taking the news of Butler leaving rather well.

“What’s going on at the club…”

“Must prefer Ryan over KLD”


Sunderland are now set to embark on their fourth season in League One and will be looking to get it right this season with a new manager and owner at the club.
