Sunderland fans loved Lee Burge’s pre-season performance

Loads of Sunderland fans have been reacting to their pre-season clash with Benfica B, and they’re absolutely delighted with the performance of recent signing Lee Burge.

New signing Jordan Willis played 45 minutes in the 0-0 draw, while Burge, who joined earlier this summer on a two-year deal, played the full match.
