Chris Sutton rages at Bruno Fernandes antics in Leeds defeat v Manchester United
Chris Sutton has destroyed Bruno Fernandes for his antics in the Leeds clash against Manchester United on Sunday (20 February).

Sutton emptied both barrels on Fernandes, handing him the Simulation award on his BBC show with Robbie Savage.
