Play­ers should grow up

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

THE fall­out be­tween Luis Suarez and Pa­trice Evra caused up­roar af­ter Suarez re­fused to shake Evra’s hand.

Suarez has al­ready had an eight match ban for abus­ing Evra, surely he should have learned his les­son by now?

Foot­ballers are sup­posed to be role mod­els to young peo­ple and be­hav­iour like this is sim­ply pa­thetic. It’s right that they get hauled over the coals.

I imag­ine from what I know about the foot­ball world that there is prob­a­bly more to this spat than meets the eye. But when fans and clubs are help­ing line the pock­ets of play­ers with mil­lions, the least they can do is act like grown-ups.
