Sunderland owner Stewart Donald has reportedly told League One bosses that the Black Cats are looking at administration due to losses caused by the current pandemic.
Donald is far from a popular figure on Wearside. The fans are clearly fed up with the owner, who was one of the “stars” of the second series of Netflix’s Sunderland Til I Die, and they are desperate for him to leave the club. There has been plenty of interest in the north-east outfit, with Juan Sartori and Kyril Louis-Dreyfus closing in on the purchase of the club.
Donald, who was against the EFL bail-out package as he believed bigger sides like Sunderland should have had a larger share of the money, has now dropped this bombshell, which has not gone down well at all with the club’s supporters.
Do you think Sunderland will go in to administration?
They took to social media platform Twitter to share their thoughts.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about Donald below

It’s a disgrace, Donald’s grip on our club is likened to the EU on Brexit . I must admit I often laughed at @richenergyceo tweets in the past but I really think your our best option now . ⚽️🙏👍
