James McClean Is Ready To Take On The Whole Of Sunderland In War With Defender

James McClean Is Ready To Take On The Whole Of Sunderland In War With Defender
By PJ Browne Updated

The bell has rung for round two between Lamine Kone and James McClean.

Over the weekend, the Sunderland centre-back and West Brom winger had at it over Twitter and Instagram after a stalemate between their sides on Saturday.

Kone feigned ignorance regarding McClean's identity. McClean responded by informing the Ivorian international that he was the one who had put him 'on his backside' with a crunching tackle late in the game.

Kone could not let it lie.

Neither could McClean.

Switching things up a little bit, the Ireland international used Instagram to take one final dig a Kone and the people of Sunderland before hitting the hay.

That face you make when you have more prem goals than the guy trying to mug you off has in prem appearances, wins and teeth the whole of sunderland have combined. good night godbless

During Saturday's game - which was at the Stadium of Light - McClean was jeered from the moment he entered the action as a 71st minute substitute. Animosity between McClean and Sunderland fans goes back to his time at the club and the whole poppy furore. Also, during West Brom's 1-0 win against Sunderland at the Hawthorns in October, McClean celebrated in front of Sunderland fans.

There's definitely no love lost between the player and supporters of his former team.
