Sunderland chairman Quinn: My kids as worried as me!

Sunderland chairman Niall Quinn has revealed how his entire family are immersed in the club's relegation battle.

Quinn told the News of the World: "My two kids were on their way to school this morning and they phoned me to tell me the injury news and that everything was going to be great.

"Their lives are completely immersed in this too. It's been draining, but therein lies how important Sunderland is to me and my family.

"If it all goes well it is worth it, if not . . . well, it's better one day a lion, than 30 years a pussycat!

"I had to have a go. My kids know that. The worst thing would have been if I had spent the last three years at home not having done this. I would always have regretted it. And I don't think the journey is over.

"My dad used to say, have a go, do the right thing, and don't blame other people."
