The FA asks Jermaine Jenas to explain the bleedin’ obvious
Spurs midfielder Jermaine Jenas can expect a letter postmarked Soho Square through his door in the next couple of days. The Football Association has confirmed they have written to Jenas asking him to explain his comments about Howard Webb following his side’s 5-2 defeat to Manchester United at the weekend.
We reckon we can help out.
Jenas said: “I think it was a case of a referee crumbling under the pressure at Old Trafford really. The atmosphere, the occasion, the importance of the match, a lot of factors take their toll when making decisions.”
What he was trying to say, we think, was that Webb had crumbed under the pressure of refereeing at Old Trafford. He was basically trying to convey that the atmosphere, the occasion, the importance of the match, and possibly some other factors had influenced Webb’s decision-making.
Hopefully that clears it up for everyone.
