Moyes unsure of future following relegation

Sunderland coach David Moyes has refused to commit to the club following an end to their 10-season stay in the Premier League.

Moyes said it was "too soon" for him to commit for next season after the Black Cat’s relegation was confirmed following a 1-0 loss at home to Bournemouth on Saturday and Hull’s 0-0 draw at Southampton.

Moyes, who took over the reins at Sunderland last summer, has been the subject of fan protests calling for him to resign.

"I think it's a question for two or three weeks' time," said Moyes.

"I think we all need to reflect and look at everything from top to bottom."

Sunderland Chairman Ellis Short apologised to Sunderland fans on Saturday, and said he had made mistakes.

The club have struggled against relegation in almost every season since Short took control of the club in 2009.

"We need to improve both on and off the field, and despite the bitter disappointment there is a strong determination to do so throughout the club," he said.

"There is significant work to be done over the summer and when the season is concluded, we intend to share our plans to move forward with our supporters."

The relegation is Moyes first as a manager.

"I feel for the supporters because they're the people who pay their hard-earned cash to come and watch and we've not given them enough this season," said the former Everton and Man United boss.

"I've had 400-odd games in the Premier League and I've got an idea of what a good squad looks like.

"My feeling at the start of the season was it was going to be a hard graft, and I'd rather be up front with people than tell them something different."
