Global Sports : Advocaat Set For Sunderland Talks

posted in: News | 0

Dick Advocaat will hold talks with Sunderland today over the club’s vacant head coach position, according to Sky sources.
The Black Cats have identified the former Netherlands boss as the man to save their Premier League status after sacking manager Gus Poyet earlier on Monday.
Poyet was relieved of his duties in the wake of Saturday’s 4-0 home defeat to Aston Villa which saw vast swathes of the crowd leave early in disgust.
The Uruguayan departs the Stadium of Light 17 months after taking over from Paolo Di Canio’s turbulent regime, with the team just a point above the drop zone.
Advocaat is expected to be offered a short-term contract until the end of the season.
The former Rangers manager has been out of work since resigning as Serbia coach four months ago.
During his stint with Rangers, Advocaat won two league titles, two Scottish Cups and a Scottish League Cup.
The 67-year-old has also won the UEFA Cup and UEFA Super Cup with Zenit Saint Petersburg, plus the Eredivisie with PSV.
Advocaat is quoted in The Sun as saying: “Working in the Premier League is what I always wanted to do. This is a very big club.
“West Ham await on Saturday then there is the interruption of the international week.
“Then we have the derby with Newcastle. That’s really something to look forward to.
