Former Sunderland player Michael Gray believes Mark Hughes is the perfect candidate to revive the Wearsiders.

Steve Bruce paid the price for a poor start to the campaign when he became the first manager in the Barclays Premier League to lose his job this season. And Gray, who played under Hughes at Ewood Park, has made former Blackburn, Fulham and Manchester City boss Hughes his "number one candidate".

The 37-year-old, who played for his hometown club from 1992-2004, told BBC Radio Five Live: "I was with him for four years at Blackburn and I know exactly how he works."
