This recent former SAFC manager is open to a return to Wearside…

Alex Neil is reportedly open to a return to Sunderland, football journalist Alan Nixon has claimed.

Neil, who left Sunderland for Stoke in 2022, had promoted the lads from league one but quickly gained contempt from fans over the manner of his departure.

However, the grass was not greener on the other side at the Bet365 Stadium and Neil was sacked after the Potters found themselves in a relegation battle.

Now, according to a report on Nixon’s Patreon subscription only Podcast, the unemployed Neil is open to returning.
