Sunderland managerial candidate Danny Cowley has publicly declared his interest in the role in a chat with Chris Phillips of the Southend Echo.
When asked if he wants the job, he said:
Sure. Sunderland are a huge football with a wonderful history. For whatever reason they find themselves in League One but we will just have to wait and see.
Cowley admitted he’s missing the game, indicating he wants to make the most of his time unemployed:
We love football and of course we miss football.
We’re some enjoying some time off and it’s been a really good opportunity for us to go away and study.
We’re continuing to try and improve and we’re working on our pro licence at the moment.
We’re trying to make the most of this time.
