Sunday Shootout Media Watch: Rhys Williams slammed for ‘pathetic’ simulation vs Adelaide

Published

on

FORMER Socceroos John Kosmina and Mark Bosnich have questioned the actions of World Cup 2018 hopeful Rhys Williams for his involvement in the red card to Adelaide United striker Dzengis Cavusevic in Saturday night’s clash.

Cavusevic was handed a straight red just 10 minutes after being introduced for raising a hand to Williams in Melbourne Victory’s 3-0 win in the fiery clash.

When Slovenian import Cavusevic bundled over Williams in a tussle for the ball, the Socceroos defender – who is hoping to break back into the national team fold under Bert van Marwijk – jumped to his feet to push his opponent before falling theatrically after receiving a slap to the face.

But Fox Sports football expert Mark Bosnich has labelled Williams’ act “pathetic” while former Adelaide manager John Kosmina said what made it worse was Williams’ willingness to dish out physical tackles, but then falling softly to get an opponent sent off.
