Today the ‘Media’ have had a feeding frenzy on Alexis’s foolishness whilst banded together in equally false outrage at the ban given to their darling Joey Barton. All this whilst ignoring the incredible challenge of Yohan Benalouane on Olivier Giroud, which was an obvious Red Card if ever I saw one.
Here are some previously unseen pictures of the Tunisian central defender, standing in for Leicester skipper Wes Morgan, using The Arsenal striker like a step ladder – SHOCKING!!
A shame the FA cannot look at this outrageous climbing incident retrospectively, although Benalouane and in fact thousands of Arsenal fans did observe that the French target man has been stood in the same spot for 15 minutes before the incident. Hardly enough mitigation for him to mistaken for step ladders thought surely.
