The Sun have got a skinny on one of the strangest bookings of the season after Stoke lost 3-2 at Manchester United on Saturday.
Ryan Shawcross, who was brought up in the Red Devils youth team, had an unhappy return to his old stomping ground after getting into two bust-ups with Robin van Persie.
Shawcross first got involved with Man United’s Dutch striker when the pair clashed just before the break, while (as reported by the Sun) “they clashed again with a heated verbal exchange while ex-United starlet Shawcross conducted his post match interviews.”
Unfortunately there is no footage of the Stoke defender’s verbal clash with the Man United striker, so we have to take the Sun at their word, as reported in the article below.
