Former Manchester United manager David Moyes has finally succeeded in dragging the Black Cats to relegation after his side lost at the Stadium of Light to visiting Bournemouth by 0-1 .
Joshua King’s 89th minutes goal was the decisive and the only goal of the match that ended Sunderland’s 10-year stay in the premier league, an achievement which the Scottish manager wanted to accomplish with United before he was sacked at the Old Trafford Stadium.
It was a sorry situation for Sunderland after former manager Sam Allardyce left the managerial position, to take up England national team’s coaching job while Moyes replaced him. After just two games as manager of Sunderland, Moyes sent signal to fans they they were relegation bound.
Sunderland’s players made frantic effort to save the situation in the match through Fabio Borini and George Honeyman in the first and second half respectively, but goalkeeper Artur Boruc was equal to the task, denying the duo their scoring chances leading to the Black Cats relegation.
The defeat is Sunderland’s 23rd in this season under David Moyes.
