Many Sunderland fans were far from happy with Josh Scowen following his post-match interview on Saturday.
The Black Cats’ already faint hopes of automatic promotion were all but ended this weekend. Lee Johnson’s side were in action against Accrington Stanley and should have secured all three points after going 2-0 up early on through a Charlie Wyke brace. However, Stanley levelled things up at 2-2 and, although Sunderland once again took the lead, they could only come away with a 3-3 draw.
After the match, 28-year-old Scowen spoke to the club’s in-house media team to discuss the game. He appeared to give a balanced view of the performance, stating that the Wearside outfit started well but were poor after the break.
Will Sunderland get promoted?
However, Scowen does not seem to be particularly popular with the supporters, and many Sunderland fans were quick to share their thoughts on the midfielder after a clip of his comments was shared on the club’s official Twitter account.
Let’s see what these fans had to say about the comments from Scowen
“Please leave my club and never come back.”
“Bottled it as usual, prob do same if in playoffs.”
“The players are simply not good enough also pleased many of them are out of contract”
“Not only do we have to suffer Scowen on the pitch every game because he is an LJ favourite they put him up for interview. Absolute rubbish performances on a regular basis”
