Lee Cattermole Gets Booked With First Ever Foul In The Eredivise

Lee Cattermole Gets Booked With First Ever Foul In The Eredivise

Lee Cattermole has hilariously been booked for his first ever foul in the Eredivise this afternoon.

The former Sunderland midfielder made his debut for new club VVV Venlo this afternoon coming on as a substitute against FC Utrecht.

Despite coming on as a sub, likely told to keep things calm, the Englishman couldn't let old habits die and got booked 11 minutes into his debut.

The 31 year-old had an impressive 20 minute cameo for his new side.


With his trademark look of a tucked in shirt, he made a number of interceptions as his side sealed a 2-1 victory.

The combative midfielder ended his 10 year association with Sunderland over the summer and made the ambitious move to Holland a few days ago.

"He brings with him a whole lot of football experience and knowledge of the football world," said VVV Venlo technical director Stan Valckx per BBC Sport.

Cattermole added:

"With my experience I can contribute to the development of this young team."

Judging by his first game, he'll be offering a lot to the Dutch outfit.

Especially in the disciplinary records.
