O'Neill keeps expectations in check

Next Story

Martin O'Neill has pledged to do his "utmost to bring a bit of success to Sunderland".

O'Neill signed a three-year deal on Saturday to succeed Steve Bruce at the Stadium of Light and was in the stands on Sunday as the Black Cats went down 2-1 to Wolves at Molineux. The former Leicester, Celtic and Aston Villa manager is excited to be back in the game after a year-long absence but refused to make any outlandish promises.

O'Neill told SAFC TV: "It's a nice feeling to be back in football and obviously I'm very excited about joining Sunderland. It's a big moment and I'm hoping it works out well. All I can say, without promising the earth, moon and stars is I will do my utmost to bring a bit of success to Sunderland."
