TRANSFER DEADLINE DAY: Former Sunderland and Newcastle man Chopra mocks Graham’s move

Have your say

MICHAEL Chopra has mocked Danny Graham’s move from Swansea City to Sunderland via his Twitter page.

The 29-year-old, who started his career with boyhood club Newcastle United and later played for Sunderland, is widely disliked on Wearside for his last-gasp miss against the Magpies in a Tyne-Wear derby.

There are similarities between the situations of Chopra and Graham, as Sunderland’s latest signing also grew up as a Newcastle fan and once remarked he would rather play for Gateshead than the Black Cats.

In a tweet sent following the completion of Graham’s £5million move, Chopra said: “Another Geordie signs for sunderland lol wonder how many mackems sign for the toon #none”.

Chopra’s comment received almost 500 retweets on the social networking site, with many criticising him for commenting following his lack of a contribution during his time on Wearside.
