Quinn leaving Sunderland role

Published Add your comment

Niall Quinn is stepping down from his role at Sunderland six years after heralding a new era on Wearside.

The former Republic of Ireland international, who as chairman put together the Drumaville consortium which backed the Black Cats return to the Barclays Premier League, and then persuaded American tycoon Ellis Short to take over, announced he is to end his involvement as director of international development to concentrate on his family and business interests.

Quinn said: "I have had the most amazing six years and it gives me a huge sense of pride to see where Sunderland is today."
