Augustin Binya, a member of the Benfica squad who lost to Celtic on Tuesday night, is openly apologising for his horrific stamp-like tackle upon Celtic opposition â€“ Scott Brown. Binya the leg breaking Ninja was accused of wanting to â€˜break the guyâ€™s legâ€™, but what possible motive would he have?
In response Binya said:
“I went into the tackle in an aggressive fashion and I lifted my right foot,”
“But I honestly had no intention of trying to hurt my opponent.
“Now I’ve seen the tackle on television and it looks bad, but I can assure you I did not try to injure anyone.”
Whilst we can all forgive and forget, we can be sure to see â€˜Them Fackin Championsâ€™ (Celtic) kick up a stink about this. Whilst Celtic remains our favourite thing to come out of Scotlandâ€™s behind â€˜Scotch transparent tapeâ€™, we can be sure that this issue will not cease until a just and proper punishment is given.
