Dick Advocaat was so emotional after securing Sunderland's Premier League survival he started crying at the final whistle, and was still going at his post-match press conference.

The Black Cats guaranteed themselves Premier League football next season after a hard-fought draw away to Arsenal put them four points clear of the relegation places with one game to go.

Advocaat - who was given seven games to save Sunderland from relegation - couldn't hold back the tears after the game. In fact, the 67-year-old was so emotional he was still crying at his press conference after the game.

As he sat down with a Sunderland press officer, he said: "It's unbelievable, it goes on. And if you start I'll go again."

The press officer replied: "I think the two of us are having a moment."

He said later: “I’ve never been in tears before but this was for a special reason.

“My emotions came when my friend Bert van Lingen (Sunderland assistant) came over, we have been 25 years together.

“When he arrived and started crying I didn’t need so much encouragement. I did the same. He said let it go, so I said: ‘why not?’”
