Jermain Defoe suggests he may leave Sunderland if Black Cats are relegated

first_img Jermain Defoe has hinted he will leave Sunderland if they are relegated from the Premier League 1 Jermain Defoe has targeted making England’s final World Cup squad next year and hinted he may have to leave Sunderland if they are relegated.The striker has been recalled to the Three Lions for the first time since 2013 after scoring 14 Premier League goals this season, despite the Black Cats battling relegation.Defoe could feature in Wednesday’s friendly in Germany ahead of Sunday’s World Cup qualifier against Lithuania at Wembley.He wants to make Gareth Southgate’s squad for next year’s tournament in Russia – should England qualify – but conceded that would be in doubt if Sunderland were relegated.“You have to be realistic, to get into any squad is based on merit and to do that you have to be playing at the top level,” said Defoe, who has scored 19 goals in 55 games for England.“When I went to Toronto (in 2014) I missed out on the World Cup. When I got the call it was hard to accept but you had to be realistic and think the boys I was competing against were playing the Premier League and Europe and that’s why I missed out.“So, yeah, I would say you would need to be playing in the Premier League but we’ll see what happens.”last_img read more

Bowyer believes buyers will be more interested in Charlton after promotion

first_img Charlton goalkeeper Dillon Phillips was praised for regaining his composure Getty Images – Getty Strugglers Wigan hold Blackburn to goalless draw in Championship ROUND-UP “That will make him stronger as a person.“There’s nowhere for him to go, nowhere to hide. You have to grab it.“A lot of those young lads have had to become men, to come from behind against a good Sunderland side.“They had to pull together but they’ve been doing it all season. They are a special group, they are heroes to many people now.” Bowyer so nearly shunned football altogether after his retirement, taking an extended hiatus from the sport.The famously hotheaded midfielder has reinvented himself as a calmer managerial presence however, admitting he is now hungry for more success with Charlton.“I’m my own man, but I was fortunate enough to play under some great managers and great players,” said Bowyer.“I’ve taken bits and bobs from all of them. I’d be silly not to. goalless Berahino hits back at b******t Johnson criticism – ‘I was in a dark place at Stoke’ REPLY Leeds lose at Fulham, West Brom held, Charlton’s winless run continues Getty Images – Getty Lee Bowyer believes Charlton’s Championship promotion could be the catalyst for new ownership at The Valley.Captain Patrick Bauer’s scrambled last-gasp goal saw Charlton sink Sunderland 2-1 in Sunday’s League One play-off final at Wembley. stalemate Charlton will play in the second tier of English football next season EFL result GREAT NEWS Cardiff and Preston play out stalemate in Championship early kick-off Hull defender MacDonald given all-clear after battle with bowel cancer The Addicks are now back in English football’s second tier for the first time in four years, leaving Bowyer confident promotion will help current owner Roland Duchatelet’s bid to sell the club.“You see how many fans were there; this is a great football club,” said Charlton boss Bowyer. “And I can’t understand why no one’s bought it, if I’m honest, even before now.“But now we’re in the Championship, it’s even more attractive.“If I were looking to buy a football club, it’s in London, you’ve got the fan base. “So I think there will be more people interested in it now, especially being one league away from the Premier League.”Charlton’s big day started in disaster when defender Naby Sarr watched on in horror as goalkeeper Dillon Phillips failed to control his back-pass with the ball rolling into the net.Bowyer’s men forced themselves to settle however, eventually levelling through Ben Purrington’s neat finish after a fine Lyle Taylor cross.And just when the clash appeared headed for extra time, up popped centre-back Bauer with the added-time winner to send the 36,000-plus Charlton fans into delirium.Phillips recovered from his error just like Charlton as a group, leaving Bowyer to praise his goalkeeper’s composure.“It’s just one of those things, it’s just a mistake,” said Bowyer.“The trouble is if a goalie makes a mistake it’s normally a goal.

And Sir Bobby Robson, he was unreal at that.”Sunderland’s seventh consecutive Wembley loss hit the Black Cats hard, especially off the back of last month’s EFL Trophy final defeat on penalties.Manager Jack Ross insisted, though, that once the disappointments fade, he will pick up that bid to guide Sunderland back to the Championship.“I came here to take the club back to the Championship at the first time of asking,” said Ross. “I’ll carry that disappointment for myself.“I came here with that ambition and I was clear about it.“I’ll continue to do that as long as I have the opportunity to do so.” LATEST FOOTBALL NEWS last_img read more
