Sunderland Press Release
After this first season the Sunderland board wanted a new approach at the management of the club. The signing of Jürgen Klopp shows the ambition towards the future of the owners of the club. Along with him the Sunderland board is happy to announce the singings of the former Barcelona youngster Andreu Fontàs, the 20 years old right back Mario Gaspar from Villarreal, the Brazilian left back Gabriel Silva from Palmeiras and the Moroccan international Younès Belhanda from Montpellier.
The owners hope that with these acquisitions and the ones that the manager can do after selling some players the team will be able to fight for a European spot next season.
