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. Jun 11 - 1:49 AM
