Club Manager Dick Advocaat Leaves Sunderland for Retirement

Dick Advocaat is leaving his role as Sunderland head coach after successfully guiding the club to Premier League safety this season.
The 67-year-old Dutchman said he no longer wished to continue a career in club management.
He joined the Black Cats until the end of the season in March, replacing the sacked Gus Poyet, with the side one point above the relegation zone.
Advocaat wept as he secured Sunderland's Premier League survival with a goalless draw at Arsenal in their penultimate game of the season.
Sunderland chairman Ellis Short said: "although I am extremely disappointed, I understand and absolutely respect his decision."
