Manchester City’s Jovetic checks to see if Gareth Bale is watching the Capital One Cup
THE Capital One Cup is football’s afterthought. If it were a were a Royal it would be Prince Edward.
English football’s second oldest club knockout competition features understrength teams seeing which of their rising / falling stars can make a name for himself by being a) hilariously inept; b) brilliant; c) inept and brilliant in the same match.
The highlight of tonight’s matches was Manchester City’s Stevan Jovetic celebrating scoring the third goal of his side’s 5-0 thrashing of Wigan Athletic by contorting his fingers into heart. That is, of course, Gareth Bale’s copyrighted move. It will interesting to see if Bale now sues Jovetic, and if the City striker posits the defence: it was only the Capital One Cup and no-one saw it.
