Sunderland: Michael Gray launches scathing attack on Stewart Donald

Sunderland: Michael Gray launches scathing attack on Stewart Donald - League One

Former Sunderland defender Michael Gray has issued a scathing attack on the club’s owner Stewart Donald.

The Black Cats failed to gain promotion to the Championship this year, finishing eighth in what was a curtailed League One campaign.

Failure to get themselves prompted sees the Wearsiders remain in England’s third tier for a third consecutive season and the pressure will firmly be on manager Phil Parkinson to deliver the goods next term.

Owner Stewart Donald, who took over the club in April 2018 from former owner Ellis Short, has received much criticism during his time in charge and his reign is now being heavily questioned.

More than 18 months into his tenure as the club’s owner, the wealthy businessman made clear his intentions to find a new buyer for the club, and former Black Cats player Gray has now given his thoughts.

Tweeting his opinion via social media platform Twitter, former defender Gray said:

Gray’s comments come after a recent club decision to not issue a refund to Sunderland season ticket holders until August.

Gray’s message is quite clear and, as someone who played a part in Sunderland being promoted to (and thriving in) the Premier League in the late 1990s and early 2000s, his words are likely to resonate with the Wearside faithful.

The message is simple and it is that Donald must leave….

What do you make of Gray’s comments? Should Donald sell the club now? Let us know in the comments section below…
