Sunderland manager Steve Bruce admits he is considering taking the captaincy off ill-disciplined midfielder Lee Cattermole.[LNB] Cattermole was sent off for the second time this season in Saturday's 1-1 draw at former club Wigan.[LNB]Tough-tackling midfielder Cattermole has picked up five red cards and 45 yellows in five years and he was sent off at Wigan for two bookable offences.[LNB]Bruce is a big fan of Cattermole, but admits the former Middlesbrough man has to learn from his indiscipline.[LNB]"I made a big decision in the summer to give him [the captaincy] and I will review that, I'll take my time and see," said Bruce.[LNB]"The responsibility might be a little bit too much, but I will have that conversation with him and think about it over the next week or so. [LNB]"He wants to do well and started off brightly but it was obviously a silly challenge he made when you've already had the yellow card.[LNB]He made four or five wonderful challenges in the first 20 minutes and that's him, he is competitive and wants to try and win the ball. [LNB]"But in this day and age he has to learn from this otherwise he's going to be in serious trouble and half his career will disappear with suspensions. [LNB]"He's got to learn from this and at the moment he isn't and that's the frustrating thing for me."
