James McClean: Admits his future is unclear after a difficult season at Sunderla

James McClean: Admits his future is unclear after a difficult season at Sunderla

The Republic of Ireland winger accepts that it was a tough period in his career on and off the pitch last term as he struggled to find his best form and became embroiled in a Twitter row.

Having been warned about his use of social media, McClean is now focused on the future and is keen to impress new manager Paolo Di Canio when he reports for pre-season duty.

He told Sky Sports News: "It has been difficult for a lot of reasons, which have been well-publicised, but that is all in the past and I will go back soon for the new season and hopefully push on.

"Each manager has a different style, so hopefully next season I can push on."

McClean concedes that his future at Sunderland is unclear but he is staying relaxed and hopes to show his best form.

He said: "Whatever happens over the summer, happens. I am just keeping my head down and doing the best for me personally and whatever comes of that, comes of that."

McClean is currently on international duty preparing for a home game against Faroe Islands on Friday, and he has set his sights on an important victory for Republic of Ireland.

He said: "It is not going to be as easy a game as people think but I will be looking for us to get three points and hopefully we can do that on Friday."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
