Mannone delighted with decision to join Sunderland

Vito Mannone is delighted with his decision to move to Sunderland.

The former Arsenal goalkeeper made the switch at the end of last season.

Mannone told the Sunderland Echo: "It's something unbelievable, it's like a dream.

"I suffered a lot in the past (at Arsenal) if I'm honest. I expected my chance for a long time there, but they never really gave me a real chance.

"Finally, I got it at Sunderland and I don't want to waste a minute.

"I'm loving every minute of every game and, when I can perform, I will do my best to help the team and to give something back to the fans, who have been incredible.

"It's great to hear them singing my name."
