Josh Maja has been discussing his departure from Sunderland but many supporters are dissatisfied with the excuse he has given.
The striker claimed he wanted to stay at the Black Cats, which some fans would probably love to hear, but only if he received a new and improved contract, being offered the money he thought he deserved.
He also stated that the prospect of joining a team in one of Europe’s top five leagues was also very appealing, and thought that the move to Bordeaux would help to progress his career.

The 20-year-old has played 12 games this season but the Sunderland faithful still reject his view of the affair, and believe that it was all about the money for him, suggesting that he didn’t really want to stay.
It is a hard pill to swallow for some, especially as his loss put a big dent in their promotion hopes last term, with Jack Ross struggling to find the same form from his team with Will Grigg leading the line as they were eventually beaten by Charlton in the play-off final.
Here are some of the reactions to Maja’s latest comments.
I wish he had stayed. We’ve have been promoted last season.

if you really wanted to stay you easily could of but you went for more money which is obv why your agent pushed the deal thru so he got more

He wanted to stay if we paid him more money, so therefore he didn’t want to stay or more bluntly he wanted to leave, misleading headline!

So it was about money, hardly a regular in the team
