Sunderland: Many fans have indicated that they won’t miss Charlie Wyke

Charlie Wyke has sustained ankle ligament damage, as confirmed by Phil Parkinson on Sunderland’s official channels.

The 26-year-old was forced off against Wycombe Wanderers to be replaced by Will Grigg, while the nature of the injury has been disclosed, and it is unknown how long the striker will be out for:

While there is a feeling of sympathy from some that Wyke has suffered the injury, many Sunderland fans don’t think he will be missed on the pitch.

Across League One and the Carabao Cup, Wyke has made 7 starts and 5 substitute appearances, getting 2 goals and 1 assist, as per WhoScored.

This hasn’t been deemed good enough by many, with a lot of Sunderland’s fans putting the team under plenty of scrutiny having dropped down to 10th in the table – which has led to them feeling it is about time somebody else played up front.

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