Ex-Sunderland star Hutchison slams Cattermole: He's no player

Former Sunderland star Don Hutchison has slammed skipper Lee Cattermole.

Hutchison struggles to see what Cattermole gives to the Sunderland team.

He barked in the Sunday Sun: "I honestly don't see a player in Lee.

"The game has moved on now to have someone that just runs around picking up yellow and red cards all the time.

"To be fair to the guy, he has been unlucky in terms of injuries and that has probably not helped him.

"What does he have to do to become better? Well, he should sit in front of the two centre halves, use his experience more and get his pass completion rate higher.

"If I was Lee, I would make it my mission to feed Stephane Sessegnon, James McClean, Steven Fletcher and Danny Graham. I think most of the time he tries too hard.

"He wants to become an enforcer, if you like, but modern-day footballers can easily play around that sort of player. He has to change."
