Video exposes Danny Murphy’s hypocrisy over Mohamed Salah dive for Liverpool vs West Ham

Posted by

Danny Murphy laid into Liverpool star Mohamed Salah for what he felt was a dive against West Ham last night.

However, take a look at the video in the tweets below that expose the Match of the Day pundit’s hypocrisy on this issue, as he seems perfectly willing to defend going down easily, depending on who the player is…

Whether or not Salah really made the most of that challenge that led to a penalty in yesterday’s game, it’s important for pundits to be balanced on this issue.

It seems clear that Murphy is all too quick to condemn some players but not others on precisely the same issue.

Liverpool came from behind to win 2-1 against West Ham in yesterday’s Premier League clash at Anfield, with Salah ultimately scoring from the spot after winning the penalty against the Hammers.

Murphy also recently took some stick for his claim that Virgil van Dijk was the best defender he’s ever seen, so at least he can’t be accused of bias against his old club.

  1. Talks rubbish Danny Murphy, his like Harry Rednapp a mercenary.Shearer and Lineker cant talk if they felt the wind touch them they went down.

  2. Murphy just can’t get over being shown the door at Anfield. He is also the king of the clichés with nothing interesting or novel to say. Why he gets airtime is beyond me. Having said all that he is far better than Mica ‘no brain’s Richards who is painful to listen to.

  3. LOL. Did anyone notice he said ‘much TO DO about nothing’ in the first clip. What an uncultured buffoon.

  4. Danny Murphy and the rest of m o t d love to think they now everything but they keep tripping them self’s up

  5. Obviously it was a dive. LiVARpool got away with it again but their luck is running out. Big defeats are inevitable this season, including Atalanta tomorrow.
