Sunderland sack Jack Ross as manager

Sunderland has sacked jack Ross after less than 18 weeks in charge of the League One club.
Ross joined Sunderland in 2018 as permanent successor to Chris Coleman but was unable to direct to club.
The Black Cats have struggled for consistency to Lincoln City at the beginning of the new year and a 2-0 defeat has left the club points behind leaders Ipswich Town.
Sunderland chairman Stewart Donald stated:That is a decision thats been made with a heavy heart.
After we arrived in the club 18 months ago, we made Jack because we felt he was the perfect man to shoot Sunderland ahead over lots of decades.
Jack has worked really hard, and has helped people achieve equilibrium at the club, and I really thank him for his attempts.
I hope and trust that he will go on to get a thriving career in management
