Watford striker, Isaac Success has revealed that he felt sad for his teammate, Etienne Capoue, after the French star was sent off for an apparent foul on Liecester City attacker, Kelechi Iheanacho.
In what is a case of love for teammate ahead of compatriot, footballlive.ng can report that Success is expressing deeper emotions for Capoue than his Super Eagles pal, Iheanacho, who apparently confessed afterwards that he had not been hit by the opponent’s tackle.
In the aftermath of Saturday’s encounter, which Iheanacho’s side won 2-0 at home, Success reckoned that Capoue was harshly sent off in the closing minutes of his side away loss to The Foxes’ at King Power Stadium on Saturday evening.
The Frenchman received his marching orders after what appeared to be a strong two-footed challenge on Iheanacho, but Success suggested that the referee, Graham Scott made a wrong call, with Iheanacho also reportedly admitting that there was no contact made.
Success, who was also incidentally shown a yellow card five minutes before the dismissal of Capoue, said he expects Watford to make an appeal against the red card, as the midfielder could be suspended for up to three games if he is found guilty.
Success said: ”I spoke to Iheanacho and he said there was no contact by Capoue. I feel sorry for him because he has been one of our best players. Let’s see what the FA will do because it was never a red card.”
