Former Manchester United defender Wes Brown has said that the players at Sunderland are all facing the axe – if they fail to perform – after the arrival of new manager Martin O’Neill.
Martin O’Neill has replaced Steve Bruce has the manager at Sunderland after the former Manchester United defender oversaw one of the worst starts to the season. Despite spending a lot of money, Sunderland are down at the bottom of the table. Sunderland managed to sack Steve Bruce knowing that the January transfer window is only a few weeks away, and it would provide the new manager with a chance to make some changes to his squad.
Martin O’Neill was chosen as the replacement for Steve Bruce. O’Neill has been out of work since resigning from Aston Villa last season. He has been linked with a number of jobs recently, but it seems that the Irishman has chosen Sunderland as the perfect destination. It is very much similar to the job he has taken before at Leicester City and at Aston Villa. Wes Brown was one of the major arrivals at Sunderland this season, as he arrived along with a crop of other Manchester United players transferred by the manager Sir Alex Ferguson.
Now, he says that no one is safe in the club, and that everyone should be cautious about their position at the club. “We were maybe feeling sorry for ourselves and the rest is history. The new manager will definitely bring a feel-good factor. This is a new start. We know the qualities he’s got and he’s going to put all his experience into the team. We’re looking forward to it but the Wolves game was disappointing,” Wes Brown said after the 2-1 defeat – a matching in which Sunderland lost from a winning position – at the hands of Wolverhampton Wanderers.
