Sunderland manager David Moyes has insisted that his club are “not panicking” despite suffering yet another defeat against Manchester City, which leaves them etched to the bottom of the Premier League table.
Sergio Aguero and Leroy Sane bagged goals for the Citizens to condemn Sunderland to another defeat at home. Moyes however remains confident that his side are improving and believes that they do have the ability to avoid relegation.
“I don’t think you can fault the players for any of that. We lacked quality at times though. They did all they could to try to get something out of the game,” he told BBC Sport.“I hope our players understand the position that we’re in, but we’re not panicking.”
Moyes has no option but to remain optimistic. The manager is not entirely to blame for the slump that the club are in.
The board failed to provide him with sufficient capital to make quality signings during the January transfer window and the lack of investment is clearly hurting Sunderland at the moment.
