Inter Miami winger Lewis Morgan has touched on his time with Sunderland, calling the club a ‘shambles’.
After developing in his homeland of Scotland with St. Mirren, the 23-year-old winger moved to Celtic in 2017 before being loaned out to Sunderland in January 2019.
Appearing 22 times for the Black Cats during his short term loan spell, the £540,000-valued attacker netted two goals and secured four assists.
Leaving Celtic for Major League Soccer side Inter Miami, who are owned by former Manchester United and Real Madrid star David Beckham, the Scottish winger has been speaking about his spell on Wearside.
In an interview with Open Goal’s Si Ferry, Morgan discussed rumours of a dressing room divide and the difficulty in playing the club.
“They are a massive club but when I was there you could tell – not from the management or playing side – but the club was a bit of a shambles to be honest.
“It just didn’t have a good feel about it. When you were there it was quite negative.
“The dressing room wasn’t negative but there were groups, so it was a hard team to settle in and play well in. It just wasn’t really a good fit.
“Ross had got most of the big-earners out, but there was so many of them that they just couldn’t get them all out of the club.”
Morgan also opted to discuss various Sunderland squad members such as Luke O’Nien, Bryan Oviedo, Lee Cattermole and former manager Jack Ross.
Morgan’s comments are of no surprise. The atmosphere and goings on at Sunderland have been largely documented via Netflix series ‘Sunderland ‘Til I Die’ over the years.
Sunderland fans may feel though that Morgan could have done a lot more during his time at the club, contributing to just six goals in six months.
