“The Hypocrisy Is Real” – Man Utd fans baffled by the lack of media outrage over Liverpool star Roberto Firmino’s drunk driving (Tweets)

As far as football rivalries are concerned, the Manchester United- Liverpool rivalry certainly ranks as one of fiercest rivalries in football. The rivalry as intense as it is, cuts across all aspects of the life of fans and players alike and boils down to the most trivial of facets.

The rivalry between the two English giants once more ascended on social media as Roberto Firmino got away scratch free from the media and popular opinion after the Liverpool attacker was involved in a drunk-driving incident on Christmas Eve.

Manchester United fans were quick to contend the supposed double standards of the media after Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney was on the receiving end of severe criticisms the media following a drunk night out incident while on England duty.

The United fans as such were clearly riled at the unfair treatment meted out between Firmino and Rooney with many venting out their frustration on social media.

  1. It is about time that footy fans realised that the scumbag press in this country are not interested in ‘The Truth’. They are only interested in selling papers. Firmino does not sell whereas Rooney does.

  2. At least everybody’s granny is safe when Roberto comes to town.
    Rooney is a thick scally scumbag who everybody loves to hate. He is also one of the most over rated players of all time. That is why he gets the press coverage.

  3. Firmino will be dealt with as and when the courts have decided what fully happened, not some stupid and bitter Twitterati. The real hypocrisy is how manc fans are always bleating on about how “small & insignificant” a club Liverpool is but then moaning when this supposedly “small & insignificant” club doesn’t attract the same headlines!!!! Make your minds up.
