Sunderland fans react as Rodwell gets Premier League trial

Sunderland fans are absolutely destroying Jack Rodwell, after the midfielder was spotted on trial with Premier League Watford.

It’s fair to say there were quite a lot of problems at the Stadium of Light in the last few years, but none have infuriated fans more than Rodwell.

The 6ft 2in midfielder swapped Manchester for Wearside in 2014, hoping the move to get regular playing time could revive his career.

Unfortunately for both player and club, the move did anything but that, and the 27 year-old went an incredible 1,370 days without a win.

He made 67 league appearances for the Black Cats, but his lack of effort and discipline combined with tons of “injuries” was infuriating to say the least, and fans were over the moon when he finally left the club this summer.

He is now on trial with Watford though, and let’s just say fans wouldn’t be too happy to see the man who spent last season simply collecting a paycheque sign for a Premier League side.
