Sunderland boss Steve Bruce has admitted he may have to rein in the tenacious instincts of captain Lorik Cana if he is to keep him on the pitch.

The 26-year-old Albania international has made an impressive start to his career on Wearside after completing a £5million summer switch from Marseille, although the yellow card he picked up during Saturday's 4-1 Barclays Premier League victory over Hull was his third in five games.

Bruce said: "That's his third yellow card - it is just getting him through the season that will be an issue. To say he is trying to do his best is an understatement. You can see why I have made him captain."

The Black Cats boss added: "He has obviously got to try to curb it, but he is just full of enthusiasm, trying to do the job and trying to play in England.

"He has got a good way about him. We will obviously have to check the yellow cards if we can, but he will be a cult hero here, I am sure of it."
