Phil Bardsley suspended by Sunderland after mocking the team on social media

Phil Bardsley suspended by Sunderland after mocking the team on social media

Bardsley was already out of favour on Wearside when pictures emerged of him at a casino just days before Sunderland's final game of last season.

He was not included in the club's Premier League squad list when it was announced last week, and a comment on Saturday night, purportedly from the player himself, read: 'Great opening day. Hahahhahaha!!!'.

It is understood the full-back has now been told to stay away from the club's training ground while the incident is investigated.

Sunderland's longest-serving player - who is in the final year of his contract - was expected to leave over the summer but broke his foot playing for the reserves last week, making an exit during this transfer window unlikely.

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
