Little mascot "does a Suarez"

Independent Reporters

IT was the image that had the whole footballing world in a frenzy last weekend ... the moment when Liverpool’s controversial striker Suarez refused to shake the hand of his Manchester United opponent Evra at Old Trafford.

The snub came in the wake of Suarez enduring an eight game ban, having being found guilty of racism, by the English FA, over an incident when the two giants of English football had last met. Evra had been the victim on that occasion.

But it not just the big stars who get up to this sort of thing.

Here a young Aston Villa mascot who fails to shake the hand of his Manchester City counter-part before a recent Premiership clash.

Was it deliberate, or did he just fumble his lines on his big day?

Either way, the TV commentators saw the funny side of it.
