Hilarious that he’s even trying to deny it, there’s clear video footage Jonny!
Man United’s Jonny Evans has released a statement denying he spat at Newcastle United striker Papiss Cisse.

You’ll Never Believe Which Manchester United Had The Worst Passing Success Rate Against Newcastle…
Yes, despite the clear video footage of the incident, Evans has said he has been completely surprised by media coverage of the alleged spitting and wholeheartedly refutes any claims he did, reports Sky Sports.
However, that hasn’t gone down well in the world of social media, with fans taking to Twitter to, generally, just laugh at Evans trying to escape punishment by simply ignoring clear evidence of the event.

Perhaps Jonny Evans was spitting sarcastically – to show Papiss Cisse what he hadn’t done and would never do. That happens

So Jonny Evans comes out with a clear lie and Cisse has the guts to admit what he done and that he knows it’s wrong. Typical United player! — Marc Real (@MarcRReal) <ahref=”https://twitter.com/MarcRReal/status/573507344576987136″>March 5, 2015
You’ve got Cisse admitting what he did was wrong and Jonny Evans thinking we are all blind and stupid… This is great. I love statements.

Jonny Evans denies spitting on Papiss Cissé despite the clear footage. The ‘Luis Suárez Defence’ really is taking the world of law by storm — ®0bB1€ d€1GhA? (@RobbieDeighan) March 5, 2015
Jonny Evans should get a 5 match ban for spitting, another 5 for denying it, and another 5 for being a simply atrocious defender.
