Troy Deeney revealed immediately after Watford’s 2-1 win over Arsenal that Gabriel has apologised for that horrific challenge in the first half.

The centre-back flew in, both feet off the floor, and could easily have broken the striker’s leg – which Deeney did point out. However, the Watford man claims that Gabriel has apologised and simply stated that they’re ‘men’ at the end of the day and therefore, they move on from these incidents.

I’m sure the win makes it a little easier to move on from, eh Deeney?

Apart from the sexist undertones, the striker makes a good statement and it’s good that he can move on from this. However, if Gabriel continues to act this way on the pitch, it’s only a matter of time before he does someone serious damage. He’s quickly turned into a liability.
