Sunderland: These fans are beginning to give up on Duncan Watmore

Sunderland manager Jack Ross has confirmed that it will be two to three weeks until Duncan Watmore is back from injury, as reported on the club’s official channels.

He continued to state that the injuries were a source of frustration for both player and manager, though he insisted that the club must stick by the 25-year-old:

This seems to have annoyed many of the club’s fans, who feel they have already been patient enough with Watmore through his injury struggles.

He has had two long layoffs since the beginning of the 2016/17 campaign, as per Transfermarkt, with various smaller niggling injuries following.

He has played once this season, coming on for the final 31 minutes of the 1-1 draw against Oxford United on the opening day, though he has been unavailable due to injury since then.

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