Sunderland fans take to Twitter to voice their concern over extending Wes Brown’s contract for another year.
It’s been a summer of turnarounds at the Stadium of Light. First manager Dick Advocaat announced he was leaving, only to change his mind within days. Now it emerges that centre-back Wes Brown is to be offered a 12-month extension to his contract a day after being named on the official ‘released’ list. The former Manchester United man, who will turn 37 in October, started just 23 matches this season – collecting eight clean sheets – missing much of the last two months with a knee injury. Reports of his pending retirement last month and his appearance on the release list yesterday barely registered a flicker on social media. But Twitter has exploded with universal dismay among fans at the prospect of another season with Brown at the heart of the Sunderland defence. Thu, Jun 11, 2015 01:49:00 AM
