Staunton lands Sunderland role

BY foxsports • August 22, 2011

The 42-year-old has been recruited as the club's match assessor, a role which will see him evaluate forthcoming opponents and draw up detailed reports for manager Steve Bruce and his coaching staff. Bruce said: "We are looking to Steve to bring a high level of expertise based on his long experience of football at the top level. "He joins a very experienced backroom team here at Sunderland and I'm sure he will be a great acquisition for us." Staunton, who had a spell in charge at the Black Cats' North-East neighbours Darlington, made his name at Liverpool and Aston Villa during a distinguished playing career which saw him capped 102 times for his country.
