Sunderland sack Chris Coleman and announce change in ownership

Chris Coleman has been “released from his contract” as Sunderland manager, while Sunderland owner Ellis Short has confirmed he has sold the club to a consortium led by Stewart Donald, the now former Eastleigh Chairman.

The Black Cats, who suffered a second successive relegation after losing to Burton on 21 April, say the 47-year-old has been “released from his contract”.

An “international consortium of football investors”, led by Eastleigh chairman Stewart Donald, will take over Sunderland subject to EFL approval.

Club statement on ownership:

Coleman left his job as Wales manager to replace Simon Grayson as Sunderland boss in November.

But he won just five of his 29 games in charge as they fell to the third tier for the first time in 30 years.
