  1. Club Statement : Jack Ross Leaves SAFC OCTOBER 8, 2019 BY RTGADMIN Sunderland AFC announced this afternoon that it had terminated the contract of manager Jack Ross. SAFC chairman Stewart Donald said: “This is a decision that has been made with a heavy heart. When we arrived at the club 18 months ago, we appointed Jack because we felt that he was the right man to take Sunderland forward over a number of years. “Jack has worked extremely hard, and has helped us achieve stability at the club, and I sincerely thank him for his efforts. I hope and believe that he will go on to have a successful career in management.” Assistant manager James Fowler has been placed in temporary charge of first team affairs and will oversee this evening’s home game against Grimsby Town in the leasing.com Trophy. The process to appoint a new Sunderland manager will commence tomorrow.

The League One sleeping giants have been told the shock news after MSD Partners spent over a month trying to finalise a deal. 1 Black Cats owner Stewart Donald is hoping to sell the club for a good priceCredit: Rex Features The group, led by Glenn Fuhrman and backed by Dell computer cash, were unhappy with the buy-out plan after due diligence. Owner Stewart Donald hoped to sell for a good price and keep a major say in the Black Cats. But the Americans have too many questions unanswered. The parties discussed initial figures over a multi-million sale before Fuhrman flew in to push on with the deal a few weeks ago. Those numbers changed after queries were raised by the American's legal team during a lengthy investigation. The Americans felt Sunderland was over-valued and also doubted whether they had as many assets on the academy side as they were led to believe. Now Donald and his men are on the look-out for other investors. https://www.chroniclelive.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/sunderland-afc-news-live-jack-17048607 Report: MSD Partners' takeover of Sunderland is OFF They report:
