Luton Town player booked after breaking his leg
Cameron McGeehan of Luton Town endured a horrific afternoon on Tuesday. Early on in Luton’s 1-0 loss at Portsmouth, McGeehan broke his leg after jumping into a tackle with Pompy’s Michael Doyle.
Reacting to the sheer pain of a broken bone, McGeehan punched the turf in frustration, which led to referee Tim Robinson issuing a yellow card. Robinson was not aware that McGeehan had broken his leg but what a ridiculous decision it was to book a player for punching the ground.
To make the night worse for Luton’s injury stricken midfielder, the home crowd chanted “you’re going home in an ambulance.”
Luton manager Nathan Jones was highly critical of the Portsmouth supporters and also said that the referee had shown a “lack of understanding.”
“The only thing I will mention is the absolute lack of class shown by the Portsmouth fans. He’s a young kid, he’s a talented kid, that works hard, that grafts. I thought they were disgraceful. They were booing him off and they were jeering. It’s an absolute disgrace. Anyone gets carried off in a stretcher, you know something is wrong. I don’t care who you are, you show an element of class. Our fans wouldn’t do that.
“And if this goes our live or is printed on the BBC, then quote this: They lack absolute class and they showed what type of fans they are.”
Well, Mr. Jones has firmly ruled himself out of ever running for the Portsmouth job with that interview.
