“Seven clean sheets last season, class,” “Worst GK I have ever seen” – Some Sunderland fans are not too happy with the signing of Lee Burge from Coventry – to compete with Jon McLaughlin as the number one.
Sunderland, on Wednesday, completed the signing of Burge, 26, and he has signed a two-year deal at the Stadium of Light, however, judging by A lot of Coventry City fans reactions they may be making a mistake in signing this particular goalkeeper.
Last season Burge made 41 appearances for Coventry, but only kept seven clean sheets and had a few below-par performances – finding himself at fault for Sunderland’s second and fourth goals
Some Sunderland fans have, overall, not reacted too well to this latest signing and they are just hoping that Burge can either put those mistakes behind him or that he doesn’t play too much.
See the best of their reactions below.
Welcome to Sunderland, Lee Burge! ????⚪️#SAFC
