Sunderland attacker admits he was left frustrated by David Moyes

Stadium of Light

Sunderland’s Joel Asoro has admitted that he was frustrated at the club last season while David Moyes was in charge.

Asoro appeared to not be a favourite of Moyes last season and he went on to make just four appearances.

He has however managed to break into the first team this season and has appeared as a substitute during all of the games since Chris Coleman became manager.

The struggling Black Cats will face a difficult test against Wolverhampton Wanderers during the weekend and Asoro is hoping to make his first League start of the season during the game.

“Last season, I was a bit frustrated,” Asoro admitted.

“If you look back on the season, we didn’t do well. I can see why [I didn’t get more minutes] as there would have been a lot of pressure on you.

“At Burton, I just felt I needed to do something – it could be defending well or to help out in attack to show the manager I want to play and play well.

“That feeling at Burton … it is hard to say, I have no words. Trying to get that frustration and anger out of my body from last season, that was it – to get my emotions out.

“I would be really happy to start, but it is not my decision. That is the manager’s decision.”
