The Express is reporting that former Inter Milan manager Walter Mazzarri has turned down the opportunity to manage the club.
Mazzarri becomes the fourth manager in as many days to reject the opportunity to become manager at The Stadium Of Light following David Moyes, Sean Dyche and Harry Redknapp in distancing themselves from the job.
The Sunderland board were reportedly really keen on the Italian taking the helm at the club, and those hopes were raised when the managers agent revealed the Italian was busy learning English in preparation of a move to the Premier League.
The Italian has been out of work since November last year when he was sacked by Inter Milan following a poor start to the season.
The Sunderland fans in The Transfer Tavern just want a resolution to the managerial situation during the international break.
