He’s A F****** P****!’: Troy Deeney Fired Foul-Mouthed Rant At Referee, Lucas Torreira & Unai Emery

Watford captain Troy Deeney fired a foul-mouthed rant at referee Craig Pawson, Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira and manager Unai Emery after being sent off in their Premier League clash.

Deeney was dismissed in the 11th minute on Monday night after catching Torreira with his elbow, seconds after Watford had gone behind in their 1-0 defeat. The striker was shocked to have been sent off, with the red card given after Pawson was informed by his assistant referee, and he made his displeasure very vocal.

With the game broadcast live on Sky, Deeney was captured by the television asking Pawson ‘what for?’ after being given the red card. After being told it was the assistant who made the call, Deeney can be seen asking the official ‘how?‘, before being told to leave the field again by Pawson.

Deeney then told Pawson the decision is ‘f****** embarrassing‘ before walking off. The former Walsall man pulled off his shirt in disgust and flung his captain’s armband towards a team-mate before making his way towards the dugout.

As he left the field, he got involved in a heated discussion with Torreira. Although Deeney’s back is to the camera during his exchange with the Uruguayan, as he turns to leave the striker clearly calls Torreira a ‘f****** p***y’.

Deeney repeats that insult to Arsenal manager Emery as he exits the field, before having words with the players and staff in the away dugout.

Deeney points to his forearm, indicating that he clipped Torreira with that rather than catching him with a deliberate and forceful elbow.

However Deeney had no choice but to leave the field of play, and he was spotted later in the first half in his Watford tracksuit, watching the game from the tunnel.

Arsenal won the game thanks to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s goal seconds before Deeney’s red card, scored after he charged down Watford goalkeeper Ben Foster as he dallied over a clearance.

Hornets striker Deeney infamously claimed Arsenal ‘lacked cojones‘ last season after Watford beat Arsenal 2-1, adding to the amusement of the away fans when the 30-year-old was given his marching orders.

Speaking after that win in 2017, Deeney said Watford’s physicality meant they overcame Arsene Wenger’s side to win 2-1 in a Premier League match.

There’s a reason why they lost and it wasn’t because of one penalty,’ Deeney said. ‘I’ll have to watch what I say. It’s (having) a bit of cojones, a bit of nuts. Whenever I play Arsenal, I’ll go up and think, “Let me whack the first one and see who wants it“‘.

Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville suggested referee Pawson was aware of the ill-feeling between Deeney and Arsenal before the match began.

He said: ‘The linesman has got a great view of it. I think 15 years ago, he’s not done a lot wrong. Now, he’s got nowhere to go.

These referees, they’re aware of previous statements and players being fired up for a game. Deeney just oversteps the line.’

Hornets boss Javi Gracia felt Deeney should have been booked: ‘I respect the referee’s decision, but I don’t agree. In my opinion, it is a yellow card but never a red.

‘I can’t explain what the referee saw to make that decision. It was an important one. I prefer to speak about my players who today deserve the recognition. We don’t get points but we had a good performance and we keep playing with the same ambition and desire.
