Sunderland: Many fans are unimpressed by the appointment of Phil Parkinson

Sunderland have appointed Phil Parkinson as their new manager, having sacked Jack Ross, as reported by the club’s official channels.

They followed this up with some of his past accolades, including three promotions, a League Cup final with Bradford City and seven League One Manager of the Month awards.

The club have also congratulated the 51-year-old on securing the role:

However, there are many fans who aren’t as happy about the appointment as their club seems to be.

There have been some who have claimed they are giving up on the Black Cats, while others will continue to show their support for the team, but the common denominator is that plenty of them are underwhelmed by the prospect of having Parkinson in charge.

He will have an immediate chance to get the fans on his side on Saturday, when Sunderland face Wycombe Wanderers, who are currently second in the league.

A selection of Twitter reaction to the appointment, including posts from disappointed Sunderland fans, can be seen below:
