Cheltenham Town football club's old boss is to take over as the assistant manager of Sunderland.

The news comes just a few hours after Steve Cotterill resigned from Stoke City, following a mere five months in the job.

They certainly get on very well, it's certainly a very big job and it's certainly a very bright opportunity for Steve. quote
Graham Allner

He will act as number two to Sunderland manager Howard Wilkinson.

The Robins new manager, Graham Allner, believes the pair will work well together.

He said: "They certainly get on well together, it's certainly a very big job and a very bright opportunity for Steve."Robins fixtures and resultsLive text commentary from Robins games

News of Cotterill's departure from the Brittannia Stadium broke earlier this morning on the Stoke City official website.

A statement revealed Cotterill had left for a job at another club although Stoke had had no contact from any club about Cotterill's services at that time.

The statement read: "Stoke City has not been approached by another club with regard to the manager and the club is shocked and surprised at the news.

"Steve Cotterill arranged for the first team squad to have this week off and the club will make an announcement regarding interim arrangements as soon as is possible."

Cotterill will have met Howard Wilkinson last year on the Pro Licence training course.

Wilkinson ran the course as part of his role as FA technical director and Cotterill was one of the first intake of ten managers to go on the course.

Cotterill subsequently had Wilkinson down to Cheltenham for a day last season and the pair have apparently forged a good relationship.
