Karlsson's praise for fans

by Kate Smith

Swede bowled over by travelling red and white army.

New boy David Moberg Karlsson paid tribute to the scores of Sunderland supporters who have made the trip to Hong Kong to follow the team in the Barclays Asia Trophy.

The midfielder was amazed that so many Black Cats fans flew half way around the world to support the team in the competition.

“I think it’s great that so many Sunderland fans came out to Hong Kong.” Moberg Karlsson said.

“It’s a long trip; they’ve done very well.

“I could hear the fans throughout the game, they were really loud when we were warming up in the corner.

“They were in fine voice and they are a credit to the club.”
