A taste of one's own medicine

Jamie Carragher's comments regarding West Ham United winger Arthur Masuaku have come back to bite him.

Only last month, the Sky Sports pundit and former Liverpool defender called Masuaku "an absolute disgrace" after the Hammer received a six-match ban for spitting at an opponent during the FA Cup defeat at Wigan Athletic.

"It's vile, it's disgusting and it's an absolute disgrace", he told Sky Sports following Masuaku's six-match suspension.

"It's one thing playing like that, as poorly as he did, but it's another thing to go and spit at an opposition player. It's now down to West Ham to react and show the fans that, that type of behaviours not tolerated. It's an absolute disgrace."

However the boot was on the other foot this morning as a grovelling Carragher was forced to issue an apology live on air after he himself was recorded spitting in the face of a 14-year-old child at the weekend.

"Totally out of order and I've apologised personally to all the family this evening," he said via Twitter. "I was goaded 3/4 times along the motorway while being filmed & lost my rag. No excuse apologies."

Naturally West Ham fans have condemned Carragher for his hypocritical stance, with many urging the TV company to fire him as a result. The 40-year-old has since been suspended by Sky Sports.
