Payet’s leg is NOT broken!

David-GoldDimitri Payet’s leg is NOT broken in FOUR PLACES!

In fact it’s not even broken in one and an attempt at bitter humour backfired this morning after David Gold hit out at a ludicrous “great tackle” comment on Twitter.

One follower declared: “ Never a red card he got the ball. Great tackle


Never mind red cards that immediately acted like a red rag to a bull with DG making no bones about his feelings as he snarled back: ”

9 hrs9 hours ago‘He’ got the ball, broke the players leg in four places. Great tackle. “Love is blind” dg
However, as reported earlier here the player has suffered ligament damage and ClaretandHugh was told this morning by a top insider: “Payet’s leg is NOT broken, its David Gold’s humour/logic. Payet has a badly damaged ankle that will will receive surgery.”
