Stadium of Light boss slams player.
Sunderland manager Steve Bruce has labelled defender Titus Bramble a “disappointment” after he was arrested for sexual assault and possession of drugs.
The Black Cats boss slammed the 30-year-old’s actions and warned all players have a moral responsibility to behave.
Sunderland have suspended him as they conduct their own investigation, but Bruce has expressed his anger over Bramble being out on the town barely 24 hours after his team’s 2-1 defeat at Norwich.
“There’s a police investigation going on into Titus and obviously I’m restricted in what I can say,” he said.
“But for me, the big disappointment is he shouldn’t have been there in the first place. With the rewards footballers get they have a moral responsibility.
“They should not be in nightclubs on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, especially after you have just been beaten – and how badly he had performed against Norwich as well.
“If it was me, I would be locking myself away, burying my head and making sure when training comes around, I’m going to perform better than I did on Monday night.
“That’s the disappointing thing for me, but that’s what, unfortunately, football has become.
“With the rewards that they have, they have to show a bit more responsibility.”
