The Suarez t-shirt fiasco

Author: No Comments Share:

As I took my position in the Springfield Stand prior to the game against Liverpool last night, I could not believe my eyes.

There right in front of me were the entire Liverpool team blatantly supporting one of their own players who has been found guilty by the FA of hurling at least one racist insult at Manchester United star Patrice Evra.

Looking totally arrogant and spreading a feeling of ill will and uneasiness among the home supporters, the visitors all wore t-shirts, openly supporting their wrong doing colleague.  They should be absolutely ashamed of themselves.  In my opinion the FA should now act again and punish the entire club on pulling such a low and degrading stunt, witnessed by millions of football supporters worldwide.

Speaking of the incident former Wigan Athletic striker Jason Roberts was also less than impressed when he responded to the sick jibe by tweeting, ” “The stance on the Suarez issue from LFC has bemused me. Are United going to print Evra shirts now? Some issues are bigger than football.”

There is no place in the game. a multicultural game at that, for racist behaviour of any sort.  For t-shirt wearing manager Kenny Dalglish to also try to excuse his player of this disgusting behaviour also left an extremely sour taste in my mouth.

As for Suarez himself, he is just a poor man’s Ronaldo, he has all the cheating skills of the Portuguese ace but none of his football class!
