Controversy has hit the Football Transfer Tavern this afternoon after a picture emerged that has split opinion at the bar.
Patrice Evra picked up a severed joke arm as part of Manchester United’s 20th title-winning celebrations last night and then decided to have a sly dig at rival Luis Suarez in the process.
The French international allowed himself a wry smile before making a gesture to bite into the fake plastic arm, mocking Liverpool star Luis Suarez’s incredible bite on Branislav Ivanoivc during Sunday’s game against Chelsea. He then carried the arm around the ground with him while he posed for photos with his team-mates.
Suarez was infamously banned for eight matches last season after being found guilty of racially abusing Evra and the United man couldn’t resist the opportunity to mock his Liverpool foe with celebrations in full swing after Robin van Persies’ inspired victory over Aston Villa last night.
While Liverpool fans have been left dismayed by Evra’s actions which potentially opened old wounds, most have seen the funny side.
