Sunderland plan to expand Ball role
Sunderland are ready to expand the role of caretaker manager Kevin Ball.
Ball will be handed greater responsibilities at Sunderland even if he is not appointed head coach on a permanent basis, says The Journal.
Ball - who as senior development coach, looks after the club's under-21s - will be handed even more senior responsibilities once the new manager is in place.
