Sunderland captain John O’Shea says the competition for places at the center of defense is a manager’s ‘dream’…
Far be it from me to suggest what Dick Advocaat dreams about in his private moments, but his skipper John O’Shea has put himself forward. And Wes Brown, Younes Kaboul and Sebastien Coates. But not necessarily in that order. The acquisition of Kaboul and Coates (permanently) this summer has given Sunderland much more strength in depth, but which two of the four will start is not yet clear. O’Shea will play alongside debutant Kaboul in their friendly with Doncaster this week and are probably favourites to start on week one. Seb Coates is still a week or two behind his team-mates following an extended break due to the Copa America and Wes Brown ended last season out of form and the team. Plus, highly rated academy product Tom Beadling is predicted to make a breakthrough this season having travelled with the first team on their North American tour. Jul 28 - 10:42 AM
