Sunderland manager David Moyes has admitted that his team’s attempts to avoid relegation are becoming “desperate” after they suffered a 2-0 defeat to Leicester City on Tuesday.
Moyes said, “It’s desperate now — I said that we had to win one of these two games away from home.”
The Black Cats now look destined for relegation having only won one of their past 13 Premier League matches and after failing to score in their past six. Though David Moyes has come under criticism for the team’s performances this season, it is unfair to blame him entirely for the disastrous season that the club has endured.
The board had failed to grant Moyes sufficient capital to make quality signings and this has been a big reason as to why the team have misfired this season.
Club owner Ellis Short probably realizes this and it was probably what influenced his decision to recently state that Moyes will remain manager of the club even if they are relegated.
