Dembele warned that wink may come back to bite him

20170701 SK Rapid Wien vs Celtic FC 1243 (cropped).jpg

David Moyes is clearly a believer in karma and reckons Moussa Dembele may get what’s coming to himself and Lyon

The  player was shamefully caught winking after managing to get Aaron Cresswell sent off in the first leg of the game but didn’t see his team  gain any big advantage as a result!

But on the basis perhaps that cheats never prosper,  the Hammers boss is claiming that he and his team could see things come back to bite them in France.

The wink was the same as that given by  Cristiano Ronaldo  against England at the 2006 World Cup following Wayne Rooney’s dismissal.

Dembele’s behaviour did his club and himself no good at all and there won’t be many who won’t want them beaten by a Hammers team who competed brilliantly with 10 men.

Moyes made it clear that the match was far from over and that the Hammers could put things right after the Dembele affair.

He said: “Sometimes you feel as if you can be hard done by and you just have to put it aside and get on with it. ‘This game has got a strange way of coming back to catch you, you just never know.

‘That’s why when you talk about people being down and reacting in certain ways, that can sometimes come back at different times in different ways.

‘Football has a strange way of coming back to get you.

‘You can see the action, you can see what happened. Unfortunately it happened and it didn’t help us.’

  1. Just how long are the football authorities going to allow cheating -feigning injury and general poor decision making to continue. trophies won by the above tactics mean little -but on and on it goes. NOTHING is ever done to improve things/ Retrospective punishment has got to start to be used -if necessary after disallowing and not allowing wrong to win a game. HOW COME De mbele has not been banned for cheating?

  2. Very similar incident to Cresswell sending off in Arsenal game yesterday and not even given as a foul… Virtually every game has cheating … Wood blatent dive for Newcastle pen … Firstly refs are supposed to book players for simulation and second VAR is meant to be used to correct these errors . Neither is happening . The authorities have not got it right . Until we have totally independent qualified people running VAR it will not work as they are all part of the same network and don’t want to upset their mates . They become only as good as their lowest common dominator which is awful .
