Lambert now under serious consideration for the Sunderland job

Date Posted,June 10, 2017

Paul Lambert has emerged as a candidate to fill the vacant manager’s role at relegated Sunderland.

The Scot left Championship side Wolves last month after losing a power struggle with super-agent Jorge Mendes.

But he could soon be back in work at the Stadium of Light, with owner Ellis Short and chief executive Martin Bain giving him serious consideration in the search for David Moyes’ replacement.

Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes, Burton chief Nigel Pearson and Preston’s Simon Grayson are also among the candidates.

Former Norwich, Aston Villa and Blackburn manager Lambert, 47, has plenty of Championship experience, including working with a limited budget.

And just as appealing for Sunderland is the fact they would not have to pay any compensation for him.
