Ryan Babel Apologises For Howard Webb Twitter Jibe

Thanks to Dimitar Berbatov‘s world-class ‘Bulgarian Shuffle’, yesterday’s damp squib of an FA Cup tie between Manchester United and Liverpool was effectively settled after just 30 seconds had elapsed which, all-in-all, precipitated a fairly dire subsequent 92-and-a-half minutes of featureless toil.

In the very first minute, referee Howard Webb had one of his chin-juttingly, chest-puffingly ‘Hollywood’ moments and saw fit to hand United a rather dubious penalty which Sir Ryan of Giggshire duly dispatched.

Liverpool substitute #RyanBabel then presumably got straight to work, sourcing the following picture of Webb in a United shirt on his iPhone…

…and then posting the scathingly satirical image to his inane Twitter account, along with a pithy remark: “And they call him one of the best referees? That’s a joke. SMH (shaking my head)” – a move that has since landed him in hot water with the FA, who almost instantly vowed to probe the Dutchman’s actions.

The Babelmonster later added (via Twitter once again):

“My apology if they take my posted pic seriously. This is just an emotional reaction after losing an important game. Sorry Howard Webb.”

The FA then responded by restating the fact that Babel can now look forward to hearing from them at some point within the next couple of days.

What a tw@t.

    So Man Utd are awarded a non-existent penalty at Old Trafford. Wow! That’s news. But it won’t do them any good against Barcelona – no English refs for Utd in the Champions League. No unwarranted sendings off, no imaginary free-kicks, no valid disallowed goals, no fake penalties…what a reality check for Fergie’s boys. And the way Barcelona are playing, it will be much more humiliating for the Red Devils this time than it was in Rome. Great!
