Sunderland manager Alex Neil has achieved a lot in a small amount of time in the managerial arena.
In his first position, Neil led Hamilton Academical back into the top-flight in Scotland, before doing exactly the same with Norwich, with whom he led up to the Premier League at the first time of asking.
However, he lost his job the following season following a poor run of form. As of July 2017 he took on the manager role at Championship side Preston North End, a job he held until March 2021.
He then led Sunderland up to the Championship just a few months after taking the job in February 2022; in the process ending the club's play-off curse.
