​Sunderland legend Kevin Phillips keen to be the Black Cats new manager

Published on: 24 May 2017

Former Sunderland striker Kevin Phillips has expressed a desire to become the manager of the Black Cats.

Following Sunderland's relegation into the Championship, David Moyes resigned from his post as manager of the club and the Black Cats' hierarchy are believed to have begun the search for the Scotsman's replacement.

The likes of Nigel Pearson, Aitor Karanka and Derek McInnes have been mentioned as potential candidates for the job and now even club legend Kevin Phillips has thrown his hat into the ring by expressing a desire to take over the vacant managerial position at the Stadium of Light.

Speaking about a potential return to Sunderland, the Derby County attacking coach said: "I would love to come back here one day to manage."
