SUNDERLAND

Sunderland flop’s 66-word social media message to supporters ahead of summer exit

Mason Burstow, the Sunderland failure, wrote a letter to the supporters prior to leaving the team.

The striker, who joined Sunderland under Tony Mowbray last summer, struggled to make an impression on Wearside and only managed one goal in 20 Championship outings while on loan from Chelsea in 2023–2024.

Now that Burstow is 20 years old, he will rejoin his parent club ahead of the upcoming season, as it is unlikely that Sunderland will try to sign him to a second loan or a permanent deal.

Burstow posted on his personal Instagram account following the 2-0 loss to Sheffield Wednesday in the Championship at the Stadium of Light last Saturday, saying, “Happy to represent this magnificent club during this season.”

“Unfortunately, the team’s performance and my own season didn’t go as planned, but it was a tremendous learning experience that will benefit me in the future. I’d want to thank all of the club staff and supporters who made me feel at home from the beginning to the end. Official @SunderlandAFC. I’m hoping for the best for everyone in the future. HA’WAY.

Sheffield defeated Sunderland 2-0 on Wednesday in their season-ending match. After a superb assist from Barry Bannan, Liam Palmer opened the score in the 29th minute, putting the Black Cats down. Nine minutes later, Josh Windass extended the visitors’ lead with a goal from Pol Valentin’s cross.

With just three goals from recognized strikers this season—two from colleague Nazariy Rusyn and one from Burstow—Sunderstandably finish 16th in the Championship.
