Sunderland Manager O’Neill Fired With Club Battling Relegation

March 30 (Bloomberg) -- Martin O’Neill was fired as Sunderland manager with the club fighting relegation in English soccer’s Premier League.

Sunderland announced the move on its website hours after a 1-0 loss to league leader Manchester United. The defeat left the Black Cats 16th in the 20-team league, one point above the three relegation positions at the bottom of the standings.

“Sunderland AFC has announced that it has parted company with manager Martin O’Neill this evening,” a statement on the club’s website read. “An announcement will be made in the coming days regarding a successor.”

O’Neill, 61, took over as coach in December 2011, replacing the fired Steve Bruce. Sunderland’s next game is April 7 at Chelsea.
