​Bournemouth striker Defoe saddened by Sunderland demise

Bournemouth captain Jermaine Defoe spoke about his sadness at how things were panning out at Sunderland.

Defoe spent a good chunk of his career at the Stadium of Light, and he is upset to see they are not in a good position. The Black Cats are currently bottom of the Championship.

"Fingers crossed they can get a few wins, build some confidence and hopefully get out of the situation they are in," he said.

"Next season, hopefully they can kick on and build on that to have a good season.

"Sunderland is a Premier League club. The fan base, stadium and the facilities, it is a massive club.

"It is sad to see them in this situation but hopefully they will get out of it soon."
