Sunderland AFC confirms that Professional Development Phase Coach Adam Asghar is set to leave the Academy of Light.
Asghar, who has led the Black Cats’ Under-18 outfit since October 2022, has accepted a new role at Southampton as Saints’ Under-21 Head Coach.
The selection process to appoint a successor has commenced, with the Asghar set to depart for St Mary’s in November.
Head of Coaching Stuart English commented: “Although we are naturally disappointed to see Adam leave SAFC, we thank him for his contribution and wish him well in the next chapter of his career. There is an established and successful pathway in place at the Academy of Light for players and coaches alike, which makes leading our Under-18s an incredibly exciting role to undertake. We look forward to identifying a new candidate to take us forward and we will update our staff and supporters upon the conclusion of this process.”
