Gus Poyet is the fourth manager he has played under on Wearside, following Steve Bruce, Martin O'Neill and Paolo Di Canio.
He said: "I'll be honest, it was strange.
"I was very fortunate as for the main part of my career I had one manager.
"But when you look at other clubs, it happens regularly.
"It's been a rollercoaster here - the classic cliche. There was a change near the end of last season.
"Then there was a change so early this season. Thankfully, the manager was able to come in and settle things quite quickly.
"It's nothing particularly special, it's just his idea - and that of the team around him - of how they want to do things.
"At the moment, it looks like there's a bit of slow progress and we're heading in the right direction.
"If we could win a trophy, it would be amazing. But there's a big obstacle."
