Birmingham ‘yoof’ taunt Wigan supporters coach | referee slammed over Joe Bennett red card

Birmingham City ‘yoof’ decided to taunt the Wigan supporters coach after a game which saw the referee slammed over that Joe Bennett red card.

After the match, a bus full of Latics fans left St Andrew’s, however young Blues wannabe hooligans gave it the big one with hand gestures and one took to spit at the vehicle as it went past.

A video of the moment, which has had plenty of social media users laughing, was uploaded and is quickly going viral. See it for yourself below…

The game itself was a special one for Charlie Wyke who set up 10-man Wigan’s winner on his first appearance since suffering a cardiac arrest last year as his side beat Birmingham 1-0.

The striker’s last competitive fixture came in November before he suffered a cardiac arrest in training. However he made an quick impact at St Andrew’s as he set up fellow substitute Nathan Broadhead’s 82nd-minute strike that gave Wigan their first win of the season.

Wigan had been playing with 10 men since Joe Bennett was controversially sent off in the 10th minute but they held kept Birmingham out before clinching all three points late on.

Leam Richardson reckoned his Wigan side were excellent value for one of the great wins in recent years at Birmingham.

“I’ve heard people who’ve been here a lot longer than me say it’s one of the greatest wins they’ve seen, and I can only echo that,” gushed the Latics boss.

“What the lads gave us today, the information they took on, the effort they put in, I thought they represented themselves incredibly well and deserved the win.

“Even after the sending off, I felt we could still control large parts of the game, both in and out of possession, and I thought we looked comfortable in doing that.

“At the same time, we had to be respectful of the calibre of players they had on the pitch, there’s a lot of Championship and Premier League experience in there.

Fans took to give their reaction on not just that, but also of the video which shows Birmingham yoof taking to taunt the Wigan supporters on their coach…


@PWUPodcast: Disgraceful

@Thorpysays: Birmingham fella has cheated, no other way to describe it.

@Dave48535286: @EFL how is that a red???? Doesn’t touch him! Sort your referees out!

@robashcroft1: Absolutely pathetic. I’d be not but embarrassed @EFL. Year after year shambolic!!!! #wafc

@Hehehehesiii: Pathetic that

@thestainsports: Yes, the refs suck. But the bigger problem is the league failing to apply harsh retroactive punishment to divers. If the EFL starts punishing flagrant simulation like this with five game suspensions, you’ll see diving stop. And our Langy will have to change too 😬

@scottbakerosrfc: The refs in this league are a joke (Birmingham fan)

@chelsiebrowbank: That’s terrible!!! Shows that all leagues need VAR! Officials have been shocking already this season!! 😡😡😡

@MalwPapachalks: Only way to stop this is retrospective bans and goals deductions where players have dived and their team score as a result
