So much so, Sunderland goalkeeper Vito Mannone believes he and his team-mates should reimburse all the club’s fans who made the long journey to witness the 8-0 hammering at Southampton.

The Sunderland supporters continued to cheer for their players until the final whistle and Mannone says he wants to meet the costs of the 700-mile away day for the 2,500 fans.
Vito Mannone: "I will personally talk to the team to see if it is possible to pay for their tickets and their trip.
"I really mean that we should pay their tickets and travel.
"I will do everything possible. We should do it because we didn't put a foot in, we didn't work hard.
"We started the game well but after we conceded we threw in the towel and I include myself.
"It is difficult for us but it's very difficult for them as well."
