Ryan Babel will face his punishment for babbling away
The FA is set to take action against Dutch star Ryan Babel, 24, after he posted fake pictures of referee Howard Webb wearing a Manchester United shirt on his Twitter account.
“And they call him one of the best referees. That`s a joke. Smh,” (smh means shake my head) tweeted Babel in a fit of anger when he saw Webb’s controversial decision to award United the first minute penalty.
“My apology if they take my posted pic seriously. This is just an emotional reaction after losing an important game. Sorry Howard Webb!” said Babel later on in an attempt to apologize.
He then made a joke out of the situation by saying that the “Twitter Police” would take him to “Twitter Jail” for misbehaving.
The FA verified that they would be investigating this outburst and that he could be charged with improper conduct and banned.
This is not the first time that Babel got in trouble for his tweets since he complained about being left out of the side and then had to apologize to his ex-boss Rafa Benitez.
“We will be in contact with the player and the club,” stated an FA spokesperson.
Paul Dalglish, son of returning Kop hero Kenny, also tweeted his opinion about Webb saying:” Fergie has his puppet Webb on a piece of string,” and he also posted a mock up picture of Webb and Alex Ferguson.
