Jonjo Shelvey apologises to Fergie on Twitter but not Evans

by Sam Peoples


Jonjo Shelvey embarrassed himself today by ranting at Sir Alex Ferguson after getting sent off for a two footed lunge on Evans.

The youngster reportedly blamed Ferguson for “grassing him up” to the referee. No Jonjo, I think 45,000 people and the referee saw your assault on Jonny Evans themselves.

He’s now taken to Twitter to apologise to Ferguson but has refused to apologise for the tackle. Judging by his instant reaction to Ferdinand, he went into that full blooded tackle with some real intent.

No doubt Liverpool fans will be ranting that they were so hard done by a referee’s decisions but singing “You’re not fit to referee” to Mark Halsey, who only recently overcame cancer to continue refereeing again, was the height of hypocrisy considering the context of the day. Double standards.

That is a backhanded apology and not even a well disguised one. He doesn’t recant his belief that Fergie was the reason he got sent off and places the blame on Fergie for his angry rant as he left the pitch which he then pretends to apologize for. #Never their fault

Could not agree more , well said , shelvey needs to grow up and accept his punishment and stop blaming everyone else .

It is crazy to claim that Evans is as much to blame as Shelvey. Shelvey went in 2 footed and planted his studs on Evans’ shin. It is true that Evans also went in 2 footed but not in the direction of Shelvey. He kept his eyes on the ball and won it cleanly without studding his opponent. Rogers should take another, closer look. I am not a fan of Halsey but he got this one right. He took so long to produce the card because he really wanted to avoid sending someone off on this emotional occasion.
