REDS TAKE SHOTS AT CAPS’ ANTICS

- May 25th, 2012

The Reds on Friday were still talking about the midweek dustup between Julian de Guzman and Vancouver’s Jun Marques Davidson. Replays showed the Vancouver midfielder blatantly fake an injury before de Guzman’s sending off Wednesday night.

“I give it to Vancouver for being smart and clever,” de Guzman said following Friday’s training. “Davidson comes up from behind and steps on my foot. I gave him a little tap … and it looked like he had CPR going on.”

Silviu Petrescu’s decision to eject the Canadian international came in the 57th minute after an extremely innocent tap on the cheek from de Guzman saw Davidson drop to the floor in agony.

“It’s so funny,” Jeremy Hall said of the incident. “I watched it last night and … Davidson went down soft and the trainer was out there looking at him … It was bad.”

Vancouver head coach Martin Rennie mixed things up by accusing the referee of bias for throwing out Sebastien Le Toux, who received a second yellow for the soft challenge that led to the aforementioned scuffle.

“Surely there’s enough officials within Canada that we could have someone that’s not from Toronto,” Rennie said of Petrescu, who is actually from Waterloo it turns out.

“I think it’s wrong,” Aron Winter said of his counterpart’s remarks.

“I can understand the frustration,” Toronto’s head coach continued. “But if you watch the attempts on goal that we had and you compare it with Vancouver, I think we played very well and they (didn’t).”
