Former Super Eagles striker, Victor Anichebe, has expressed delight after helping Sunderland to earn their first English Premier League win at the weekend adding that the team’s 2-1 win at Bournemouth proves the players are right behind David Moyes.
Moyes has been under pressure following their poor start to the season, but Anichebe inspired them to a first victory of the campaign at Dean Court.
Sunderland were reduced to 10 men when Steven Pienaar was sent off for a poor challenge, but Anichebe won a late penalty which Jermain Defoe dispatched to secure a long overdue three points for the bottom side.
“It was a great performance by the team, and it was really important to get the three points,” Anichebe told the club website.
“When we went down to 10 men the fans were like the 11th man for us, they really pulled us through so credit to them, and credit to the manager.
“The manager has a lot of pressure on him even though it’s not him going out to play. He’s a really good manager but he just needs time to put down what he wants us to do.
“Where we are at the moment is not where Sunderland should be, it’s criminal really, but hopefully we can get some players back and continue to do well.”
