A number of Sunderland fans have slammed manager Lee Johnson after seeing him speak to the media following the club’s recent League One match.
During the week, the Black Cats played Shrewsbury Town in a game that ended all square. Despite taking the lead thanks to an Alex Pritchard goal and then seeing opposition man David Davis sent off, Sunderland could not hold onto their advantage and had to settle for a 1-1 draw.
Speaking after the game, Johnson said the game was ‘disappointing’ and felt like ‘two points dropped’.
Though, he also added: “We can’t disrespect the point, it is a tough place to come.”
His interview was shared by the club’s official Twitter account and it’s safe to say many supporters were not happy with what they heard.
Here’s what these Sunderland fans had to say…
“This is the face and words of a man who has absolutely no clue what is going on. Some of the comments made are ridiculous.”
It certainly seems as if these fans are not at all content with their manager’s assessment of the game. No doubt, they would have been infuriated to be pegged back by a team with 10 men who also sit in the League One relegation zone.
Will Lee Johnson still be Sunderland boss by Christmas?
Sunderland now find themselves only just inside the play-off places, in sixth spot on 32 points. If things do not improve quickly for the Black Cats, their supporters will likely continue to feel the frustration towards Johnson, with some already calling for him to be sacked.
