The power of karma never ceases to amaze! There have been strong suspicions expressed in many quarters that former Manchester City board member and now chairman of the FA David Bernstein, was the man who helped engineer the two match suspension handed out to Wayne Rooney which will keep him out of the FA Cup semi final against Bernstein’s old club. That may or may not have been the case, we may never discover the truth but, IF he was involved in rubbing out the Manchester United striker in any way, the old karma has come back to bite him on the bum at Anfield on Wednesday night.
City’s captain and leading scorer Carlos Tevez was substituted after just 16 minutes with an apparent hamstring tear that’s almost certain to keep him out of the semi final. So now it’s even stevens with both sides missing one of their key players. I would have personally preferred to see the two teams at full strength in such a big clash but if there were any underhand dealings in order to deprive United of Rooney, then justice has been done.
Do you believe that City were involved in any way with Rooney’s suspension?
