Sunderland manager David Moyes has admitted that poor recruitment last summer has played a role in the Black Cats’ drop from the Premier League.
Whilst speaking about his club’s relegation after ten years in the Premier League, Moyes said, “You probably need to look back to the start of the season to see where we needed to make the recruitment better, but time was so short and that was where the difficulty was.”
The Black Cats officially have no chance of avoiding relegation after their defeat to Bournemouth during the weekend.
Despite the poor performance from Moyes, the club certainly did not provide him with sufficient funds to add quality to the team.
Out of all the players that were brought to the team, Didier N’dong and Victor Anichebe were the only two that really caused trouble for opposition teams during the season. The absence of the injury prone Anichebe for parts of the season also hampered the club.
