WF Yellow Card of the Week: Aug 20

Will Tidey@willtideySenior Manager, GlobalAugust 20, 2013

Phil Bardsley was already on very shaky ground at Sunderland. You might remember the pictures of Bardsley lying on a casino floor surrounded by bank notes. If you don't, here's a reminder.

The club didn't like that. Their manager Paolo Di Canio didn't like it either, and now he has another reason to feel anger towards the full-back.

Per the Sun, the injured Bardsley appeared to be relishing Sunderland's opening-day Premier League defeat when he responded to a picture posted on Instagram.

Bardley's message was quickly deleted, but Sunderland have banned him training and launched an investigation into his alleged antics.

Together with his casino cameo, he's had a Bleacher Report yellow card coming. He's lucky it's not a red.
