As we all know, Sunderland had a very poor season in the Premier League in 2016/17. They suffered relegation to the Championship after a miserable season. Sunderland sacked their manager David Moyes and hired former Wales manager Chris Coleman in hopes that he would get back into the Premier League. However, Coleman could not help the Black Cats and they suffered relegation yet again down to the League One.
Sunderland are selling of a lot of players as they lower their wage bill after being relegated. This will have to happen again for the 2018/19 season as many players will earn far too much for a League One side.
Sunderland sacked manager Chris Coleman following relegation to the League One and after the owner Ellis Short sold the club. The new owners, spearheaded by Stewart Donald, hired Scotsman Jack Ross as the new manager for the 2018/19 season. So here are the Sunderland players salaries for 2018/19 season.
The average weekly-wage is just over £2k per-week in the League One. So Sunderland are selling their players or slashing players wages wages. Unfortunately, clubs don’t release their wage bill information but we have used various sources to present an estimate of he current wages at Sunderland.
New Sunderland owner Stewart Donald recently revealed that their wage bill still tops £20 million a year (as of June 2018).
The new owner spoke to “A Love Supreme” and admitted that their wage bill will likely be the highest in the League One…
“I think we will have the top budget in the league and there is no point hiding that, but it is a question of spending this wisely, although we have that capacity but even if we do get up it won’t be an achievement in a sense, so we won’t be over spending to get there.
“Bearing in mind that players will want to come here why should we have to beat anyone’s wage, they should want to come here.
“If we could sign say 16 players on League One wages, about £3k a week for a defender and £5k a week for a striker that’s around £4 million which is more than any other club will spend, that will put you high on the budget radar.
We expect Sunderland will cut these players salaries but until we know more here are the current wages of Sunderland players in the 2018/19 season.
|Player Name||Position||Weekly Wage||Contract until|
|George Honeyman||Attacking Midfield||2019-06-30|
|Lynden Gooch||Attacking Midfield||£5,000||2019-06-30|
|Duncan Watmore||Right Wing||£20,000||2020-06-30|
|Aiden McGeady||Right Wing||£31,000||2020-06–30|
And that is the list of Sunderland players weekly wages. As you can see there is a broad range of wage brackets. Lee Cattermole has been at Sunderland for awhile so he has earned his high salary at the club.
