#premierleaguestories – #Denmark #ThomasSorensen remembers good old days of Sunderland

Thomas Sorensen Sunderland

Former Sunderland goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen has recalled the night he wrote himself into Sunderland folklore.  In one of those wins, Sorensen saved a late penalty from Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer and almost 20 years on, it is still a moment that is fondly remembered on Wearside. Sorensen would go on to play for Aston Villa, Stoke and Melbourne City but it is *that* penalty save against the Premier League’s record goalscorer that he is best ‘remembered for’.

The former Denmark international spent five seasons on Wearside as Sunderland won promotion to the Premier League before achieving back-to-back seventh place finishes. Sorensen was an integral part who almost qualified for Europe and during a golden period for the club, they also recorded two successive derby wins over Newcastle at St James’ Park.
