In a setback which insiders say may be difficult to come back from, Sunderland manager David Moyes has been hit by fresh misfortune today after his reflection began to fade from the mirror.
According to sources close to the Scot, his reflection began to fade slowly early last week, with the phenomenon progressing rapidly in recent days to the point that the former Manchester United manager appears almost entirely transparent.
“Things were already bad for David. Sunderland are really struggling in the league, the fans aren’t happy and the players appear unmotivated. The last thing he needs is to have the imagery echo of his being disappear before his eyes,” said one club source, admitting that it is particularly sad because Moyes has always spoken with pride of his reflection, something which regularly distinguishes existing entities from non-existent ones.
“With everything that’s going on with the club’s form and the cut-throat nature of the top-flight football, your reflection is absolutely vital. Losing it like this is something very difficult to come back from.”
At press time, Moyes had reportedly grown increasingly anxious after a deafening echo began to follow every word he spoke.
