An Unsavoury Incident!

An Unsavoury Incident!

The back pages of the tabloid press are full of articles relating to something that the game is trying to get rid-off.

Numerous articles report that Patrice Evra has accused the Liverpool forward, Luis Suarez, of racially abusing him.

If so, then the authorities need t throw the book at Suarez, if not then Evra could fall under the microscope.

The accusation has been noted by the FA with a spokesperson remarking,

"The FA have been made aware of an incident that is alleged to have occurred during the Liverpool versus Manchester United fixture at Anfield."

"Referee Andre Marriner was made aware of an allegation at the end of the fixture and has subsequently reported this to the FA."

"The FA will now begin making enquiries into the matter."


Evra, discussing the matter with a French TV station, has commented,

"There are cameras. You can see him (Suarez) say a certain word to me at least ten times."

"There is no place for that in 2011. He was trying to wind me up."


But, as you`d expect, the alleged accuser, Suarez, has denied it, with a spokesperson from Liverpool further adding,

"The first anyone knew about these allegations was when Kenny Dalglish was called into the referee`s room about 20 minutes after the game."

"We have since checked with Luis Suarez and he categorically denies using any language that could be interpreted in that way."


It should be interesting what the outcome of this investigation proves to be, definitely one to keep an eye on, but, yet again, something that has soiled a clash between two of England`s finest clubs!

Thats a serious accusation and I can't imagine Evra just making it up. It's one word against another though and unless there's strong evidence proving him right or wrong nothing can really be done. If Suarez is found guilty of racial abuse then I really don't know what to say.

If Suarez is guilty of what Evra claims then he should be punished severely, but as Evra has past history of claiming racism without proof, against Chelsea's ground keeper if I'm not mistaken, anything he says should be considered with a grain of salt.

If Evra is found guilty of falsely claiming racial abuse then I really don't know what to say.

Evra has form - Finnan in 2007, FA said there was no case to answer, Evra got a 4 match ban. By the Senegalese for choosing France over Senegal in 2006, oh and again in 2010 at Chelsea with a groundsman....anyone seeing a pattern here? He's made claims in 2006,2007,2010,2011. If the game was this racist, wouldn't other black players be coming forward? Then again, if Suarez is guilty throw the book at him.

As much as I detest Patrice Evra, there is absolutely no place for racist abuse in football. The allegations may never be proved, there's even a slim chance that Evra is crying wolf in an attempt to get someone who is rapidly becoming one of the most hated players in the league vilified even further, but if there is even the remote possibility that Suarez used racist language then he deserves a very lengthy ban.

Seems a bit odd that no one is backing up Evra's claims. Surely someone would have heard it once out of the ten times?

You can't ban someone just because there is a remote possibility of him doing what Evra says he did. You ban him when you prove that he did it. Innocent until proven guilty and all that.

And if Suarez said what is claimed, surely other players, other than Evra, heard what he said, especially if it was said more than ten times as was claimed. They should come forward if they heard it, or they should say that they didn't hear anything.
