The club's former owner and chairman, Ellis Short, oversaw a decade of Premier League soccer while in charge, but will leave with the side having suffered back-to-back relegations.

Sunderland will begin life in English football's third tier under new ownership after it was confirmed that the Black Cats have been sold to an global consortium headed by the chairman of non-league Eastleigh, Stewart Donald.

Donald added: "All of us involved in this bid believe that Sunderland represents an extraordinary opportunity".

The deal will now be subject to EFL approval.

"Sunderland AFC announces that manager Chris Coleman and his assistant Kit Symons have been released from their contracts", said a brief club statement on Sunday.

The trailer just debuted, mere DAYS after the release of Infinity War . "The people I love the most, they pay the price". The Ant-Man and the Wasp cast includes Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly as Ant-Man and Hope Pym/the Wasp respectively.

Aside from his association with Eastleigh, Donald has also been a behind-the-scenes presence at Oxford United in that club's revival over the last ten years, as an investor, shirt sponsor and supporters trust committee member.

Coleman left his position with Wales to return to club management, but his prospects aren't likely to be too badly damaged despite his failings with Sunderland, such was the difficulty of the job at hand. But, over the years, so many talented young managers have emerged only to disappear when their first stint in the dugout goes awry and, with the Black Cats slipping into League One, in need of a major rebuild and with a toxic atmosphere on and off the pitch, you could hardly find a tougher first assignment for a young coach.

"The many high points of a decade in the Premier League have been overshadowed by the low points of the last two bad seasons".

"We have a carefully thought-through plan to restructure the club, make it sustainable and, with the help of the fans, to restore its sense of pride and reconnect it with the local community".
