Media balls: PSG’s Cavani ‘cuffs’, ‘slaps’ and ‘chins’ Arsenal’s ‘playacting’ Ramsey

Should Edinson Cavani have been sent off in PSG’s Champions’ League match at Arsenal? The Star says the striker “cuffed” Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsey “on the chin”.

John Cross tells Mirror readers, “Cavani clearly aimed a punch at Aaron Ramsay. No surprise that Cavani missed Ramsey’s face.”

Tony Banks tells Express readers, “Cavani appeared to punch Aaron Ramsey on the jaw.”

Charlie Wyett tells Sun readers, “Cavani lashed out at Aaron Ramsey – he should have been sent off.”

SLAP!

 

In the Mail things become more confusing. We see Cavani “losing it”. He “plants his hand into Ramsey’s neck”. Sami Mokbel says Cavani “aimed a punch at Ramsey”. The Mail says Cavani slapped Ramsey.

IN THE NECK!

 

Writing in the Mail, former referee Graham Poll counters his own paper by accusing Ramsey of “playacting”.  He says “Ramsey was not touched on his face – but Cavani escaped the yellow card he deserved”.
