Former Sunderland manager Chris Coleman insists that he does not regret managing the relegated club.

Former Sunderland manager Chris Coleman has insisted that he does not regret joining the Black Cats despite the role ending with relegation from the Championship and his dismissal.

Coleman, who has since taken charge of Chinese club Hebei Fortune, put his plight in the North-East down to bad timing.

"I don't worry about what anyone says. I failed in my first campaign with Wales and I didn't listen to anyone then," he told The Sun.

"We were successful in France [at Euro 2016] but I didn't listen to anyone then either.

"Yes, I fell on my face at Sunderland. I don't regret taking the Sunderland job.

"It was just the right club but at the wrong time but this is another job, a new challenge and I'm going to give it my best shot."

Coleman took over at Hebei Fortune last month, succeeding current West Ham United boss Manuel Pellegrini at the helm.
