Not the first time that someone could have died after falling foul of Ashley Williams |
But he has said this before as well:
Ashley Williams Said:
The two things I would take from that quote is that 1. he can hate someone so much for their actions on a football pitch that he wants to seriously hurt them and 2. he hates multiple premier league footballers (albeit he hates Suarez the most).
Suarez has that aura about him that says, 'I'm untouchable', and his manner and behaviour made me want to knock him out, I'd go as far as to say that the manner in which he approached the game, with utter contempt for us all, means that he's streets ahead of any player I've truly disliked since I've been in the Premier League.
Add on to that the fact that he's deliberately left his leg hanging in front of Coutinho after clearing the ball with the intention of taking the player out, doesn't seem like the nicest fellow.
Edit - surprised people are implying Coutinho dived, the fall may look a bit dramatic but if you were running along at a fair pelt and had someone bigger than you sticking their leg out across you like that nine times out of ten you would be hitting the ground awkwardly as well, he had no time to avoid that collision.
I've injured my own shoulder in the past playing football after someone took me out as I ran past the with the ball. I've never heard of someone injuring themselves diving, because if you've made a decision to fall unnecessarily you can control the fall so you don't land awkwardly.
