Colorado Rapids manager Anthony Hudson has categorically denied rumours that he is about to join English outfit Sunderland as the new manager. The Black Cats are without a manager after deciding to part company with Chris Coleman at the end of the disappointing 2017-18 campaign. After having been in the Premier league only a couple of years ago, Sunderland now find themselves in League One after back-to-back relegations.
After spending time with the likes of New Zealand, Hudson has been able to settle himself into the job at Colorado Rapids.
However, there is a high possibility that the 37-year-old will want to get back to English football. After starting his career as a manager with Real Maryland FC in 2008, Hudson has been in charge of teams like Newport County and Tottenham under 21s. His foray into international management saw him take over the likes of Bahrain and New Zealand. Even at just 37, Hudson has decent experience when it comes to management and also holds an A-license.
Hudson was unable to repeat the World Cup exploits of New Zealand in his three years in charge of the national team. As a result, New Zealand were not able to qualify for the World Cup 2018. Still, it is possible to find some highly attractive underdogs in the World Cup free bets.
Hudson has categorically denied suggestions that he would be taking over at Sunderland, as he has stated that Colorado Rapids happen to be his only focus right now. “My life right now is Colorado Rapids,” said Hudson. Since taking over as the MLS outfit back in November, Hudson has had a decent run. The club will be disappointed by the start that they have made to the 2018 campaign, as they are only on just eight points from nine matches. Furthermore, Hudson has been through several time zones already in the last few years. It is highly unlikely that the 37-year-old will be interested in a switch after just a few months into his career in the MLS.
