Luke Molyneux has opened up about his Sunderland exit as he aims to prove his former club wrong at Hartlepool United this season, the Hartlepool Mail report.
The 21-year-old winger spent the majority of last season on loan at Gateshead and Pools before Sunderland opted not to extend their academy graduate’s contract.
It was a bitter pill to swallow for Molyneux but one he quickly bounced back from when he agreed to re-join Hartlepool permanently earlier this month.
“I’d been (at Sunderland) since I was 14 so it was quite tough,” he admitted.
“I was one of the last ones in my age group who were still there. It was only me and Denver (Hume) who were left so it was quite tough to leave but I think it’s going to help me in the long run.
“It’s just about proving them wrong now and I think this is definitely going to be an advantage for me as a player.”
