Sbragia likes his privacy

Ricky Sbragia has admitted he is torn over whether or not he would want the job of Sunderland boss should he be offered it.

The Scot did his prospects of being included on chairman Niall Quinn's short-list for Roy Keane's replacement little harm by guiding the club to a thumping 4-0 Barclays Premier League win over West Brom last Saturday in the wake of a creditable display in a narrow defeat at Manchester United a week earlier.

Sbragia said: "I would never have thought about it, to be truthful. I was always happy being a coach. I do enjoy it."

He added: "I am quite a private man, I like my privacy. If I go the other way, if it does happen and everything goes well, I know for a fact I won't have that privacy.

"It is a balance, I am trying to make a balance between if I want the job, if I don't want the job.

"At present, I am happy doing what I am doing. I just feel comfortable in that area.

"Niall has been good to me. He has taken a lot of pressure off me. He talks to me near enough every day.

"But at the end of the day, if we get a good result on Saturday, I will probably be in on Sunday, and that's how I take it.

"It's up to them upstairs to make a decision, but they will make a decision what is right for Sunderland, and I will abide by that, I don't have a problem with that."
