This is pathetic from Stefan Savic, it really is.
Anyone who’s played football at even a Sunday League level knows that the odd bit of rubbish gets said on the pitch between players in the heat of the moment – but then it’s left on the field at 90 minutes and handshakes are exchanged.
But the former Manchester City defender has publicly discussed his scuffle with Jordan Henderson, which occurred at the very end of England’s 5-1 hammering of Montenegro on Monday night.
He claims Hendo disrespected his team-mates by sarcastically offering a player his jersey after the match – but Savic has missed the point.
Hendo’s shirt was being pulled, so he told the Montenegro player if he wanted it that badly, he could just have it after the game.
It’s trivial, and actually quite funny. Savic needs to get off his high horse and realise his team got battered.
If he wants to come out and condemn anything, perhaps it should be Montenegro’s racist fans.
Liverpool fans agree wholeheartedly, we’re glad to report.
Montenegro CB Stefan Savić: “We know England are a much bigger team than us but sometimes I feel bad playing in the same sport as some players.Jordan Henderson for example,sarcastically told our player that he would give him his jersey after the match. It’s ugly & disrespectful.“ pic.twitter.com/eg1H4txCaQ

The irony given the behaviour of his fans. Hendo did say this because one of his players tried to rip it off him, anyone would’ve said the same

What??? Why is this being disrespectful? I would have thought it was worse that part of your crowd Savic were racist towards our black players!

He did grab henderson by the shirt and grab him around the neck though. Sarcasm is a fantastic british gift that non-brits have struggled with since 1066AD

Imagine having a whinge about that while also using a photo of a player with his hand grabbing Henderson by the throat!
