The Interview Stage

Will Still stands as a prominent candidate in the race to become Sunderland’s next manager. Despite initial doubts over his fit for the role, the club believes he could align with their current operational model, keeping much of the existing coaching and backroom staff intact.

Norwich City’s Decision and Sunderland’s Opportunity

Previously in contention for the Norwich City job, Still’s prospects shifted when Football Insider reported that Johannes Hoff Thorup had secured a deal with the Canaries. This development leaves Still open for consideration by other clubs, including Sunderland.

Searching for Leadership

Following the departure of Michael Beale in February after a brief 12-game stint, Sunderland is on the hunt for a new leader. Interim manager Mike Dodds has stepped in temporarily as the club evaluates its options for a permanent appointment.

Still’s Managerial Journey

At just 31 years old, Will Still has already made a mark in the managerial world. His tenure at Reims in France’s Ligue 1 was marked by a commendable 14-game unbeaten streak to start and an 11th-place finish in his first season. He left the club with mutual consent before the season’s end, with Reims eventually climbing to ninth.

A Model for Progress

Sunderland’s vision for the future incorporates a stats-based approach and a commitment to nurturing young talent. The potential appointment of Still, despite his relative inexperience, would reflect the club’s progressive ethos and confidence in data-driven, youthful dynamism.
