Jozy Altidore: Believes Sunderland have the quality to pull clear of trouble

The Black Cats were beaten 2-1 at home by Manchester United to remain bottom of the table with just one point from their opening seven games.

Kevin Ball has taken charge for the last three matches following the sacking of Paolo Di Canio and Altidore has been impressed by the interim boss.

But he says the players will not become distracted by talk of who might get the manager's job on a permanent basis and will stay focused on getting Sunderland out of trouble.

"It's been really good to work under Kevin, a really positive experience," Altidore said in The Sun.

"There's been a lot spoken about a new manager but as players we just have to keep going. We can't concern ourselves with decisions being made elsewhere.

"Whatever happens, we're confident we can turn our season around.

"The quality is there - but we have to work for it."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
