Sunderland director David Jones has this message for Sunderland fans.
Sunderland’s non-executive director, David Jones, has promised fans that the team can improve despite recent missteps.

The Sky Sports presenter grew up a Sunderland fan and now serves as a non-executive director on the club’s board alongside co-owners Kyril Louis-Dreyfus and Juan Sartori.

However, speaking after watching the third series of the Netflix docu-series Sunderland Til I Die, Jones confessed to the club’s recent faults and swore that the Black Cats will improve in the future.

In a post to Instagram, Jones said: “Watching the show I was reminded of: what a brilliant job Alex Neil did for us, what a giant role model and servant Luke O’Nien is and Lynden Gooch was for us, how much I loved watching Ross Stewart play for us (I hope he can find his way back to fitness) and how we miss Louise Wanless terribly…”
“But also how vital our fans are, the soul and the heartbeat, how much they have been put through (sometimes because of our mistakes) and how all of us serving the club have to do more, so much more, to get this club back to where it belongs, because we are not there yet. And we need to take our fans on the journey. There has to be another chapter.”

The Black Cats’ next Championship game is against Tony Mowbray’s Birmingham City, after Michael Beale’s team lost away to Huddersfield Town in their previous league fixture.
