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.

Lee Cattermole did really well coming off the bench for his VVV-Venlo debut. Was easy to spot him with his black boots, tucked-in shirt and, you know, obligatory yellow card. Also, a great win away to a good team in Utrecht. #utrvvv

The 31 year-old had an impressive 20 minute cameo for his new side.
Brilliant debut from Lee Cattermole!:joy:- Michael Statham (@EredivisieMike) August 25, 2019
Great leader on the pitch, yellow card, intimidating opposition players and a last ditch tackle to secure VVV-Venlo a 1-2 win at Utrecht. Refreshing for Dutch football...
Stay tuned for my interview with Lee in October!#utrvvv #Sunderland pic.twitter.com/twJX4sdMzG
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.
"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.
