OFFICIAL: O'Neill appointed manager

As expected, Sunderland have confirmed the appointment of Martin O'Neill as the club's new manager on a three-year contract.

O'Neill, 59, will start work officially on Monday, following tomorrow's clash at Wolves.

Speaking to BBC Sport O'Neill said:

'It's a very nice feeling to be back in football and to be the manager of Sunderland. It's a big moment for me.

'I'd heard about what a good club it was but coming here, seeing the stadium and training ground, I've been bowled over. It's absolutely fantastic,' O'Neill added.

'I hope I can help Sunderland to a very successful period. That's what I've come for and that's my driving ambition.'

Sunderland chairman Ellis Short said: 'Martin has as good a managerial pedigree as you could wish to find.'

Welcome Martin.

Bitter? Or just upset because MO'N is now elsewhere and you have to put up with the mediocrity of Alex McLeish?
