Pundit reveals why ex-Leeds and Tottenham Hotspur ace ‘loves’ Sunderland


And he has won praise from Harte, who has been impressed with the width, with Mowbray also highlighting him as a key threat earlier this week.

Speaking to Bet365, Harte said: “This young man is incredibly talented. He’s still only young. He left Leeds and went to Tottenham and didn’t get the opportunities he probably deserved when he was there.

Sunderland striker Jack Clarke.

“But in football you have to dust yourself off and I think he’s gone to the right club where he’s loved, looked after and the performances he’s put in so far this season have been brilliant. Hopefully he can keep doing that for the club

“Yes, he loves Sunderland. I think Tony will be very good for Jack as well, because he takes the time to talk to the players, he tries to get into their heads and he makes them feel special.

“That’s why I think Tony fits in really well at Sunderland. Especially with all the other youngsters and young players there as well.”

Clarke missed the midweek trip to Huddersfield Town through suspension.

Boss Mowbray said earlier this week: “Jack Clarke has been one of those players, he’s been a real threat for us this year and we have to find a solution. I’m sure our fans understand where we are in At the moment, I know they want to win every game and we want to do that, but it’s another great player unavailable,” he added.

Meanwhile, Sunderland will be supported by 2,200 fans away at Birmingham City next week.

The club has announced that tickets for the Championship game, the last one before the World Cup break, have already sold out.

Within an hour of tickets going on general sale, the remaining tickets had been purchased.
