On-loan Inter player Ricardo Alvarez suffered a difficult 2-0 loss on Tuesday night against QPR. The player was a second half substitute but was not able to turn the result around.
Both clubs are in a relegation battle to stay afloat in the Premier League for next season. Currently, Sunderland sit 2 points clear of the relegation zone and depending on your perspective on the player this may be good or bad. Alvarez is set to be redeemed by Sunderland for 11M in the summer in the instance that they remain in the Premier League. Therefore many Interisti have become part-time Sunderland supporters in the final leg of the PL season.
