Former Rangers, QPR, and Nottingham Forest manager Mark Warburton discussed the Sunderland job during a recent appearance on a podcast, acknowledging the club's potential while refraining from committing to any specific interest in the role.

Sunderland recently appointed Mike Dodds as the interim manager following the departure of Michael Beale earlier in the month. Dodds' temporary appointment has sparked speculation about who will take over the managerial reins permanently in the summer, with various candidates being linked to the position.

During his appearance on the No Tippy Tappy Football podcast, Warburton was asked about his potential interest in the Sunderland job. While he didn't provide a definitive answer, Warburton praised Sunderland as a "massive" club with a great fan base, emphasizing the significant opportunity it presents for any manager or coach.

Acknowledging Sunderland's stature and potential, Warburton highlighted the importance of getting the managerial role right for anyone stepping into the position, suggesting that it could lead to a fantastic journey for the individual and the club.

Sunderland's next match is against Swansea City at the Stadium of Light on Saturday, and the club's managerial situation remains a topic of speculation and interest among fans and pundits alike.
