Sunderland: Fans address Chris Coleman’s Ellis Short comments

Sunderland: Fans address Chris Coleman’s Ellis Short comments - Sunderland

Former Sunderland boss Chris Coleman has launched a stinging attack on ex-owner Ellis Short, prompting fans to react via social media.

Life at the Stadium of Light has been very much documented to football fans over the last few months with the Netflix series ‘Sunderland ‘Til I Die’ sharing life on and off the pitch at the Wearside club.

Which Sunderland manager has the best win percentage of all time?

Much of the first series showcased the reign of the former Welsh international defender, who was unable to halt the club’s relegation to League One from the Championship in 2018.

Coleman’s time at the club featured various struggles with former chairman Short, seeing him refuse to invest any money into club transfers during the winter window of 2017.

Suffering relegation, Coleman was sacked from his role as boss by new club owner Stewart Donald, who remains in charge.

Donald, who was also part of the Netflix series on the club has come under much criticism of late, and is reported be keen on selling the club.

Speaking on his time at the club and his relationship with Short on the Keys and Gray Show via Sunderland Echo, Coleman has also revealed the way in which he was dismissed from the club.

“Sunderland was 100 per cent the right club,” he said. “The chairman of Sunderland was 100 per cent the wrong chairman.

“As a manager or a coach or even as a player, before you signed a contract you’d meet the chairman. I’ve still never had a conversation with him – not a text or an email.

“When we arrived we needed some help, and we got completely bombed. From day one when we arrived – absolutely no dialogue, nothing. That really disappointed me.”
