As well as being knocked out of the League Cup at the very first hurdle, one Yeovil player suffered a major personal embarrassment during Tuesday night’s 1-0 defeat to Aston Villa at Huish Park.
Shortly before half-time, winger Diallang Jaiyesimi thought he’d fired The Glovers in front and chose to celebrate by busting out the Antoine Griezmann-approved ‘Loser’ dance in front of the travelling Villa fans.
However, in time-honoured tradition, Jaiyesimi forgot to double check with the match officials before goading his opposing supporters, who swiftly had the last laugh when the goal was chalked off for a miscellaneous infringement in the build-up…
Painful to watch.
A 77th-minute goal from Conor Hourihane was enough to seal the win for Villa, with Jaiyesimi left to rue his hubris.
As mentioned, Pies aren’t entirely sure why his goal was disallowed, but that celebration alone would be enough to have it immediately ruled out in our book.
