Boss’ plan will come good, says winger.
Sunderland winger Adam Johnson has called for patience from the fans as Paolo Di Canio’s plan comes together at the Stadium of Light, the Daily Mail reports.
The Black Cats have recruited heavily already this summer and Johnson is hoping that fans will give them all the time they need in order to settle into the squad and get used to the rigours and demands of the Premier League.
Whilst performances have improved since last season against Fulham and Southampton this term, the new-look Sunderland have collected just one point for their efforts ahead of this weekend’s trip to Crystal Palace.
“It’s tough for us at the moment. We’ve got a lot of new players, they’ve come in and we’ve had a lot of new starters who might take time,” he said.
“We should have three points on the board. We gave away a sloppy goal against Southampton and we struggled on Tuesday but we’re in the next round of the League Cup so we’ve got to look on the positive side.
“We’ve got a good game against Crystal Palace on Saturday: it’ll be tough but we’ve got to look forward to going there and trying to get the three points.
“Sometimes the window is good because you can strengthen your squad. Obviously I don’t know what is going to happen here but the manager says he is looking to bring in even more new players and that could be a real plus point for us. The fans will be looking forward to that as well.
“We need the bodies for competition for places and that’s always a good thing. When it is out the way everything can maybe settle down, I suppose.”
