Sunderland midfielder Cattermole has swipe at Premiership foreigners

Sunderland midfielder Lee Cattermole has had a pop at the Premier League's foreigners.

The midfielder reckons Stoke's Dean Whitehead only avoided a red card in Monday's goalless bore because Cattermole is English and doesn't go to ground easily.

"Basically because I'm English and I'm honest, he hasn't been sent off,'' said Cattermole. "Sometimes you wonder if you should do what some of the foreign lads do and make the most of it, but I won't change. I didn't go rolling around, making the most of it."

Whitehead conceded: "I was slightly lucky to stay on."
