Sunderland youngster Joel Asoro has spoken out about his anger towards former manager David Moyes, claiming that the Scotsman did not give him a chance while in charge of the Black Cats.
Last season, Asoro was overlooked by Moyes on a regular basis, with the forward only making four appearances in the entire campaign. Asoro spoke of his frustration under the current Hammers boss last season, as reported by the Sunderland Echo.

“Last season, I was a bit frustrated.
Joel Asoro is just a beast— conor (@conormac_10) December 2, 2017
“At Burton, I just felt I needed to do something – it could be defending well or to help out in attack to show the manager I want to play and play well.
It's been a dismal year for Sunderland, and at the weekend one would suspect that things could get even worse. However, Asoro has been a bright spark this season and if given the chance could push his side up the table.
