David Moyes resigns at Sunderland but will play part in finding replacement

The beleaguered Scot stepped down 24 hours after the Black Cats’ 5-1 thrashing at Chelsea, turning his back on £3m compensation.


Moyes was so desperate to end his Black Cats’ hell he walked away without a penny just nine months after succeeding Sam Allardyce.
But he parted on good terms with owner Ellis Short and managing director Martin Bain, who he accompanied to the LMA dinner last night.
The pair had wanted him to stay on but reluctantly accepted his resignation three weeks after relegation was confirmed.
However, they will tap into his own experiences as they search for the club’s eighth boss since 2011.
Sunderland have no-one in mind to replace Moyes and will take their time in drawing up a short-list.
And Starsport has been told they will listen to their former manager’s own recommendations and what he believes the club now needs following relegation.
While there is no frontrunner at this stage, names likely to be discussed will be Nigel Pearson, Ryan Giggs and if Huddersfield miss out on promotion, their German coach David Wagner.
Moyes’ turbulent spell in charge at the Stadium of Light saw fans turn against him after a disastrous campaign in which Sunderland won just six league games and finished 16 points adrift of safety.
And he leaves with an FA charge hanging over him after threatening to “slap” a female TV reporter.
The 53-year-old was never in any danger of the sack but fell on his own sword, having decided he was not the man to lead a Black Cats’ revival.
While Moyes feared he would not be starved of the funds required to launch a sustained promotion bid, this was not the prime factor behind his decision.
The Scot felt his relationship with Sunderland fans had become so strained and the atmosphere so negative that a clean break was required to give the club a chance to recover.
It is understood he made up his mind several weeks ago but kept up a public front, talking about future plans and even holding contract talks with several players.
Moyes, however, had a strained relationship with certain individuals with Wahbi Khazri, Papy Djilobodji, Lamine Kone and Jason Denayer all refusing to play at Chelsea, citing injuries.
Meanwhile, former Stadium of Light striker Jermain Defoe has opened talks with Bournemouth after they indicated they would be willing to meet his £130,000-a-week wage demands.
