Manchester United defender Jonny Evans has been branded ‘disgusting’ by the FA for his recent spit at Newcastle United striker Papiss Cisse, CaughtOffside reports.
The Northern Ireland international picked up a six-game ban for the incident, and has been attacked by an FA panel for this example of anti-social behaviour.
“The ordinary man in the street will find his action to be simply disgusting,” declared the panel.
“It should not be allowed in any walk of life, let alone any football field.
“It is clear that Mr Evans is looking directly and indeed aggressively at Mr Cisse. His lips are ‘pursed’ and he is close to Mr Cisse.
“If he was, as alleged to be the case, a person who ‘habitually spits’, then the commission were concerned as to why he did not turn his head away from Mr Cisse when so spitting.
“If that had been a family member or indeed another team member or his manager in front and below him would he still have carried out the same manoeuvre?”
