Many Sunderland fans were surprised to hear that Jack Ross has been sacked today, just hours before their EFL Trophy match versus Grimsby.
Sunderland are currently sixth in League One after 11 league games and had faced their first loss in five games when Lincoln defeated them 2-0 at Sincil Bank.
Ross became the manager at the Stadium of Light in May last year, leading the club into Wembley twice in the final of the EFL Trophy and the League One play-offs, though unfortunately, both ended in losses to Portsmouth and Charlton respectively.
Sunderland fans may have been surprised about the news, but that doesn’t mean they weren’t necessarily happy – if Twitter is anything to go by.
After the Sunderland club account tweeted the news, the account was met with a barrage of memes from club supporters who were expressing their delight at the sacking.
