Many Sunderland fans have reacted to a question via social media on the who club’s most underrated player has been.
The last few years for the Black Cats have not exactly been a delight for fans to watch, having dropped from the Premier League to League One, something which has been heavily documented via Netflix series ‘Sunderland ‘Til I Die’.
Prior to the club’s downfall, the Wearside outfit had a memorable time in England’s top flight, signing some recognised names too in the process.
Looking back over the club’s recent seasons and the players who have come and gone, the Black Cats have seen the likes of Jordan Pickford, Jack Rodwell, Jozy Altidore. Jermain Defoe and lots more household names, play for the club.
With football currently at a standstill, fans of the club have been engaging via social media, and a latest debate has many of them discussing who they feel was the most underrated player to wear the colours of red and white.

I say this with my tin hat on but Jozy Altidore. He had some great games for us one at Sid James, the 2nd 3-0. Then also capital cup run in the quarters v Chelsea. Sometimes unplayable then he again he couldn’t hit a barn door.
