Sunderland confirmed the appointment of Martin O'Neill as manager of the struggling Premier League club on a three-year contract on Saturday.

O'Neill, 59, replaces Steve Bruce, who was sacked earlier this week, and is back in management after a year out of work following his exit from Aston Villa.

"It's a very nice feeling to be back in football and to be the manager of Sunderland. It's a big moment for me," O'Neill told Sunderland's website.
