Fulop backs Sbragia to be Top Cat

Published Add your comment

Sunderland keeper Marton Fulop has revealed caretaker boss Ricky Sbragia would have the full backing of the players if he was appointed as Roy Keane's replacement.

The Scot has quickly mobilised the squad since being asked to step into the breach in the wake of Keane's resignation, and was rewarded after a battling performance in defeat at Manchester United with a rousing display in last Saturday's 4-0 demolition of West Brom.

"If it was up to the team to decide who the next manager was, we would give the job to Ricky straight away. He has been brilliant for us since he took over," the 25-year-old Hungary international said.

"I definitely feel the team is in good hands.

"Everyone in the team would back him to do the job permanently - but it is not our decision.

"It is up to the board to decide, and we are looking forward to hearing their decision."
