Sunderland SHOCK!: I will leave ‘if I feel that it is better that somebody else takes over’

first_img Dick Advocaat 1 Dick Advocaat has insisted he would walk away from Sunderland if he did not feel he was the right man for the job – but he has no intention of doing so.The 67-year-old Dutchman will head into Tuesday night’s Capital One Cup third round clash with Manchester City at the Stadium of Light having seen his side fail to win any of their opening six Barclays Premier League games of the season to sit at the foot of the table.Asked if he had any regrets about deciding to shelve his retirement plans during the summer, he replied: “No, no regrets.“Listen, let’s be clear: if I feel that it is better that somebody else takes over, I’m the first man who will say, ‘It’s better for the club, I will go’, believe me.”However, asked further how close he might be to calling it a day on Wearside, he replied: “Very far, because we did not have a pre-season with the players and now we can see that they are coming a little bit to the level [required]. But you still have to gel the combination with players, etc, etc.“We will try tomorrow a little bit differently, and I’d like to see what they do. But I still have a good feeling about this squad and if we have 40 points, I think we have enough.”The Black Cats thought they had turned something of a corner against Tottenham last Sunday when they produced a much-improved display in a 1-0 home defeat, but they surrendered that feel-good factor inside nine disastrous minutes at Bournemouth on Saturday as they allowed the Cherries to secure a decisive early lead.last_img read more
