Chris Coleman apologises to Sunderland fans for 'brutal relegation experience'

Dejected Sunderland fans watch as their team are relegated during the Sky Bet Championship match at the Stadium of Light

Sunderland boss Chris Coleman has said he does not know if he will be at the club next season after their relegation to League One.

Sunderland host Burton Albion in a clash of the Sky Bet Championship's bottom two clubs, with the loser's relegation to be potentially confirmed this weekend. It's a brutal experience but, over 44 games, we haven't been good enough'.

The Wearsiders may not have lost a match this season after going in front, but they've drawn a lot more games than they've won in this situation and have dropped a staggering 22 points from winning positions this season. I am sorry for the supporters who have stuck with us every week, followed us, we haven't had enough and we have fallen short.

"I feel helplessness, really".

Coleman's charges had led at home to Burton with five minutes remaining, but late goals from Darren Bent and Liam Boyce saw Sunderland relegated for a second season in a row.

Boyce scored the crucial victor for Burton, but understood the importance of Darren Bent's equaliser just minutes earlier.

He is expected to officially be called up for Sunday's game against the Toronto Blue Jays . Torres is also one year removed from Tommy John surgery, but says he's fully healthy.

Sunderland were beaten 2-1 at home to Burton.

'Everyone got a bit confused. It came down to the disappointment of losing to Burton so late on. If you don't do that then you end up where we are. But we didn't have what was needed. I do understand the pressure on it. I experienced it as a player but not as a manager. It's brutally painful. I have been here two minutes, the supporters have been here for years I can only imagine how they are feeling.

He added: "I came to manage Sunderland, it's a great club and we're in tough times and what's happening around the corner I have no idea". "He (Brian Clough) used to talk with such affection about the people, he so enjoyed his time here", said Clough.

"However, it was not envisaged nor expected that we would subsequently be facing the prospect of League One football, which makes this position all the harder to take".

Needing one point from their final three matches to be crowned champions, Wolves got the job done thanks to goals from Barry Douglas, Benik Afobe and Diogo Jota plus a Conor Coady penalty. This club has to strip everything back and start again. Hopefully this is rock bottom for them reached.
