Robson pops off to Sunderland

Sunderland have appointed Bryan "Pop" Robson as their new chief scout, the former striker rejoining the club that is "very close to his heart". The Sunderland-born former striker, who returns to Wearside from his last post as an international scout for Chelsea, played 174 times for the club during three spells, served as reserve-team coach and Academy director and even stood in as caretaker manager. He said: "Sunderland is obviously a club very close to my heart. I had great times here both as a player and as a coach, so I'm thrilled to be back working with Steve Bruce and his excellent management team."
