Sunderland: Interesting spectator at Oxford as club remains unsold

Sunderland: Interesting spectator at Oxford as club remains unsold - Sunderland News

Current Sunderland owner Stewart Donald was in attendance as Sunderland beat Oxford United at the Kassam Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The summer has proven to be another uncertain one for Sunderland fans that has seen a potential takeover be discussed.

Donald, who took over the club in 2018 has seen his time in charge of the Black Cats be heavily burdened with plenty of criticism and little success.

Donald’s decision to try and sell the club after just 19 months in charge also caused a backlash from fans and talk has been rife this summer about a potential new owner coming in with a whole host of names mentioned.

Chinese businessman Sammy YuMark Campbell and former Black Cats defender Michael Gray have all been linked with interest, whilst Rich Energy chief executive William Storey is also said to be keen.

With little talk of a takeover developing over the last few weeks, Donald chose to attend Sunderland’s game against Oxford at the Kassam Stadium on Saturday.

Phil Parkinson’s side were held to an opening day draw in the previous game against Bristol Rovers but goals from Luke O’Nien and Lynden Gooch ensured all three points for the Black Cats against the U’s.

question mark

Which Sunderland manager has the best win percentage of all time?

Donald’s attendance has been picked up by Sunderland Echo, who followed up the report with an image of Donald amongst other club officials.

It looks and feels very unlikely that Donald is going to sell the club anytime soon and it will be interesting to see if he can do so before the end of the current season.

Interest from the aforementioned names has gone slightly quiet over the last few weeks and with focus firmly on the pitch, especially after failing to seal promotion for a second consecutive season.

His attendance at this game could suggest that he believes he will remain in charge for the near future.

Do you think Donald will sell before the end of the year? Let us know in the comments section below…
