The focus may be on Sunderland’s manager search, but former striker Kevin Phillips believes the Black Cats and their potential new manager must make another important choice in the new year.

Following Tony Mowbray’s dismissal, Sunderland’s interim manager Mike Dodds has reignited the Wearsiders’ play-off aspirations with back-to-back wins against West Brom and Leeds United at the Stadium of Light.

Those performances have taken some of the sting off of the new manager hunt, with Dodds likely to return to the dugout for this weekend’s trip to Bristol City. While Kristjaan Speakman and his colleagues are right to emphasize the appointment, former South Shields manager Phillips pointed out another move that may have had an equal impact.
