If Stuart Pearce were dead, he’d be turning in his grave
We have all been mistaken all this time. We all thought that when footballers were given the slightest tap on the face and fell to the floor, it was because they were trying to get a member of the opposite team sent off.
But no. Because, as this video shows, reactions are the same whether it is a member of your own team or the other team. And so it must be official: footballers are pussies.
The ‘victim’ in question is Rafa Casanova. Good name. Good fall. No dignity.
For those of you worried, the end of the video does reveal that Casanova was ok to continue with the game.
