Sunderland’s Juan Sartori to run for Uruguay Presidency

Sunderland have been performing well in League One this season as they look to make a swift return to the Championship.

The Black Cats have lost just once inside their first 12 games under Jack Ross’ in the league competition and will be confident of keeping the pace with the sides above them.

The Mackems did make a number of signings in the summer to help bolster their squad, however, the latest news could help them to bring some overseas talent to the Stadium of Light.

According to Busqueda, Sunderland director Juan Sartori is preparing to stand for presidential election in Uruguay.

The 37-year-old has been working hard on the idea for a number of months and is expected to start his campaign in November.

Should he do well in his home country, he could help put Sunderland on the footballing map in the nation and help to bring a number of talented South Americans to the Stadium of Light in the future, something that Roker Report have claimed recently.

The Verdict:

Sunderland have obviously been enjoying their new ownership, as results on the pitch have been a lot better than they have been for years.

Despite Sartori preparing for presidential elections, he is expected to remain at the club and that could help them to bring in a number of young talented Uruguayan players to the Stadium of Light.

However, it will remain to be seen if he does well in the political field in his home country, and what effect that will have for the Black Cats.
