Some Sunderland fans have reacted to recent comments made by Neil Warnock over his love for the club and regret that he did take the managers job in 1993.
Speaking earlier this month to The Friday Football Social on 5Live as quoted by Sunderland Echo, Warnock revealed that he had been approached by the Wearside club whilst he was manager of Notts County.
During his time with the Magpies, the now 71-year-old manager led them to the First Division before being sacked in December.
Months before his exit from County, however, it has been revealed that then-Sunderland owner Bob Murray offered Warnock the managerial job at the club.
Sunderland, who have missed out on gaining a play-off place this season after the League One season was ended via a points-per-game system, will now prepare for a third successive season in England’s third flight.
A number of changes can now be expected at the Stadium of Light this summer as current owner Stewart Donald has made it clear he still wants to sell the club.
It seems that several fans want to see a change in the dugout too, with many latching on to Warnock’s comments and calling for him to replace Phil Parkinson as manager. The ex-Sheffield United boss is of course currently out of work having left Cardiff City earlier in the 19/20 campaign.
It is understandable why some supporters would want Warnock, given he has a record eight promotions on his CV (Sky Sports). Here is what some had to say…

I’d have him in a shot. Excellent track record of making clubs successful without the huge budget.

Bring him in because I know that he got relegated with Cardiff he got the most promotions in English football he would be up for the challenge.
