Yesterday, Sunderland goalkeeper Vito Mannone suggested that Black Cats players should reimburse supporters who had traveled to St Mary's on Saturday only to witness the club fall to a humiliating 8-0 defeat against Southampton.
"I will personally talk to the team to see if it is possible to pay [for the fans'] tickets and their trip," Mannone said.

The Uruguayan saw the Black Cats score two own goals on their way to their biggest ever Barclays Premier League defeat as a Graziano Pelle brace, as well as goals from Jack Cork, Dusan Tadic, Victor Wanyama and Sadio Mane sealed a memorable afternoon for the hosts.
