Manchester United player Jonny Evans’ behaviour has been slated by an FA regulatory commission as ‘simply disgusting’.
Referring to the damning video evidence, the commission were clearly bemused that Manchester United and the player himself, were trying to defend Evans against the charge of spitting towards Papiss Cisse.
Many neutrals will believe that the actions of Manchester United were also simply disgusting in attempting to get the player off the charge, further bringing the game into disrepute.
Papiss Cisse was just as guilty when it comes to what he did nine days ago, but Jonny Evans has simply added to the blackening of his name, by not having the integrity to own up to doing something wrong.
Part of the FA Regulatory Commission statement read:
“The video evidence is crucial as without doubt it clearly shows what happened.
“The Regulatory Commission has been referred to Mr. Evans’ “intent” which in the opinion of Manchester United was not to spit at Mr. Cisse.
“Only one person knows his intent and that is Mr. Evans. The Regulatory Commission, with the best will in the world cannot, and certainly should not, guess at his intent.
“What is clear from the video clips is what actually happened.
“Mr. Evans had (and has) a duty of care, if spitting for whatever reason, not to direct the same in the general direction of an opponent, or indeed anyone else. The video clips clearly show that he failed in his duty of care.
“There may, in some quarters, be substantial sympathy for Mr. Evans, but the video evidence shows that he did what he did, and the ordinary man in the street will find his action to be simply disgusting and should not be allowed in any walk of life, let alone on any football field.
