Ryan Giggs has revealed that Adnan Januzaj suffered a terrible injury from his knee to his ankle after David Meyler stamped on him during the match.
The Belgian was on the floor after battling for possession when Meyler maliciously stamped on his ankle with the intent to hurt him.
There’s no way to pretty up what Meyler did or try and pass it off as something else. It was an attack that deserves retrospective punishment.
Meyler’s actions are uncondonable and as the referee missed it, a ban should follow. There’s no place for that in football at all.
That being said, Giggs should probably have used a better turn of phrase when describing it.
“The authorities need to stamp down on it,” he proclaimed.
