Sunderland: Tony Mowbray unsure of his future after losing to Luton
The Black Cats’ play-off season ended with a 2-0 loss at Kenilworth Road meaning their campaign is now over.
Attention now turns to the summer as Mowbray’s future as Sunderland head coach is a huge area of uncertainty.
The Teessider has a contract until the end of next season and wants to remain in his current position as head coach.
However, the Sunderland hierarchy was heavily linked last month with a potential move for Italy manager Francesco Farioli, with Mowbray aware of the speculation.
He discussed the situation with sporting director Kristjaan Speakman earlier this month but apparently still feels there are still questions that need to be answered.
“I’ve enjoyed it but who knows what my future holds,” Mowbray said. “Let’s wait. Do I want to be here next season? I do, yes But let’s wait and see how things continue and what summer brings.
“I don’t know what’s going to happen next. I just keep going. I have a contract so I’ll just keep going. I’m only mentioning this because of the speculation of the last few weeks. Let’s wait.”
Farioli is not the only manager to have been linked with a potential move to Sunderland in recent weeks and Mowbray is clearly keen to get some clarity on the club’s plans with a Premier League spot out of the question.
“Do I feel insecure? Not at all,” he continued. “Modern football clubs can do what they want. I’m pretty relaxed. I feel like I came here and managed to work with these young players and create a team environment that has worked well despite the huge losses of some very important footballers.”
