Rangers goalkeeper Wes Foderingham has blasted former Liverpool star Jermaine Pennant for his comments on Twitter in the wake of Saturday’s Champions League final.
Pennant had said on his personal Twitter account that he was “gutted” for Liverpool’s players and fans – except goalkeeper Loris Karius after two howlers turned the game in Real Madrid’s favour.
Foderingham wasn’t impressed with Pennant’s comments and blasted the former winger, saying his comments say “an awful lot” about Pennant as a person.
“To post something like that as former professional says an awful lot about you as a person,” Foderingham said on his personal Twitter account.
Football Insider verdict:
It’s impossible to disagree with Foderingham here and Pennant’s comments don’t do anything to portray him in a good light. That said, it’s doubtful that anyone will lose any sleep about the opinion of a player who threw his career away with continued disciplinary and legal problems – even playing wearing an electronic tag after a conviction for drink driving. Pennant using the hashtag #YNWA (You’ll Never Walk Alone) is a little bit of brilliance from former Liverpool and Arsenal winger as he threw the Anfield keeper under the bus. Pennant’s comments have shown him up for what he is and is likely to be something that will likely follow him around as he looks to build a career outside of playing after failing to win a deal at Hibernian last summer and having to tumble down the leagues and play for Billericay Town. Foderingham is quite right to have stood up for his fellow goalkeeper after two mistakes that will haunt Karius’ career for a long time to come.
