Sunderland interview out-of-work boss amid previous reservations

Sunderland have interviewed Will Still with the 31-year-old remaining in contention for their vacant managerial post, as per Football Insider.

Sunderland remain on the hunt for a new manager as they look to improve on a disappointing 2023/24 campaign.

The Black Cats parted ways with Michael Beale in February and were led by Mike Dodds until the end of the season. They finished in 16th, a long way away from the play-off spots they ended up in in the season prior.

Pressure is on the board to get this appointment right after some questionable calls and while plenty of the summer remains, patience will start to wear thing among supporters as their new boss hunt drags on and rival clubs bring in their own manager.

Highly-rated boss Will Still has been a Sunderland target before but reports have said the club have been looking elsewhere.

However, new claims have emerged stating he could yet be in a good position to land the role. Football Insider states the Black Cats have interviewed Still and after previous reservations of how he’d fit at the Stadium of Light, he remains ‘firmly in the running’ for the post.

Who is this?

In the running…

Speculation over who the next Sunderland manager could be has been rife. Links have been and gone with nothing confirmed and as time passes, they’re losing out on key preparation time for next season.

The new manager will need time to assess his ranks to see where they need to recruit, who can make way, and how the current players will fit into their play style.

Still has been frequently linked but things looked to have quietened on that front amid a recent update.

However, with the Norwich City job – one he had been linked with – set to be landed by Johannes Thorup, the way may have cleared for the Black Cats to bring him in.

Previous reservations

    If a swoop for the out of work Still was to come off, there will be questions over the reservations Sunderland held.

    It would be interesting to see if a compromise was met between the two clubs, or if either party revised their position to meet an agreement. Furthermore, it would be hoped that this initial hesitation wasn’t something that came back to bite the club.

    Fans are keen for a new boss to come in but with Still links chopping and changing, only time will tell just who takes the reins at Sunderland.
