The decline of Sunderland Football Club has been painful to watch.

The proud club has slipped out of the Premier League and currently sit in a precarious position in the Championship.

They are also, currently, without a manager.

Today, lurking amongst the plethora of articles on the internet is one from the news source, Talksport that suggests that a former Manchester United forward is interested in taking on the vacant role.

The former player in question is Dwight Yorke, with the 46-year-old remarking to reporters about his interest in the job,

‘I have tried to get hold of [chief executive] Martin Bain and left a message or two to see if there is any comeback.

‘The place needs a lift, something new, something exciting.

‘They have gone for experience in the past. They have tried that and it hasn’t quite worked out. Why not give it to someone new who is really eager to prove he can do the job?

‘An interview would be nice. I will still continue to work at that and see where I get.’

Is Dwight Yorke the man to turn around the fortunes of this ailing giant of a club, or are they looking for somebody with a lot more experience?
