Watford’s Christian Kabasele trolls the BBC
Whether the Doucoure transfer gossip is true is up for debate.
Would he get into the likes of Man United or Tottenham were the to move the move from Vicarage Road?
But leaving that issue to one side, the BBC have been trolled on social media by Watford’s Christian Kabasele for they way in which they recycled the story.
When the BBC shared the rumour on Twitter, instead of using a photo of Doucoure, they used a photo of Christian Kabasele instead.
Christian Kabasele has been quick to screenshot the BBC’s tweet before blasting them for lacking basic Google knowledge.
