Defiant O'Neill 'the only man for the job'


A defiant Martin O'Neill has insisted he is not just the best man for the Sunderland job, but the only one.

O'Neill's men are in the bottom three after only two victories in their last 23 league games ahead of tonight's night's clash with fellow strugglers Reading.

O'Neill said: "So what do you do then? So you go and put someone else in charge, he gets a group of 12, 13 games and can't win any matches? It's the same thing.

"I don't want to sound wildly boastful, but not only am I the best man for the job, I am actually the only man for the job."
