Sunderland fans bash club over Pickford mess up

Sunderland fans have found another reason to bash their previous ownership, after reports suggested the Black Cats won’t get a penny if Jordan Pickford makes a huge move this summer.

According to reports, both Manchester United and Bayern Munich are targeting Pickford, but Sunderland will not receive a portion of the deal, as they did not agree a sell-on clause when they sold him to Everton.

The young stopper swapped Wearside for Merseyside last summer, after an incredible season earned him a nomination for the PFA Young Player of the Year award.

Despite grabbing an initial fee of £25million in the deal though, it seems the Black Cats made a big mistake by not demanding a portion of any future sale.

The report claims Munich are eyeing the young Englishman as Manuel Neuer’s successor, and Manchester United could turn to him if David De Gea joins Real Madrid.

The previous ownership a the Stadium of Light took plenty of deserved criticism, and fans are bashing them again for not including a sell-on clause.


It’s safe to say the club could do with some extra funds right now, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
