Sunderland were beaten by Hull City in the Championship on Friday evening.
Former Sunderland players Stephen Elliott and Micky Gray have criticized the team’s performance in the Championship match on Friday night against Hull City.
Following a scoreless first half, Liverpool loanee Fabio Carvalho gave the visitors the lead in the 71st minute, sending Michael Beale’s team down a goal. Due to the outcome, Sunderland now sits seventh in the Championship standings.
A portion of the crowd at the Stadium of Light screamed for Beale to be fired as Gray, who rose through Sunderland’s junior system to earn 410 appearances in all competitions for his boyhood club, was recently inducted into the club’s Hall of Fame.
The 49-year-old won two promotions with Sunderland as a first-team player between 1992 and 2004 before enjoying stints with Leeds United, Blackburn Rovers and Celtic but was shocked by the Black Cats’ performance against Hull City and hinted towards blame at Beale.
