Derby County rocked by biting allegation


//

Derby County’s Bradley Johnson has come under fire for appearing to bite Stoke City’s Joe Allen during their EFL clash on Thursday.

A heated sequence in the 33rd minute saw Stoke’s Peter Etebo sent off as both sides came together in a melee at Bet365 Stadium.

Amid the fracas images appeared to show Johnson biting Allen on his neck as the two grappled with each other.

Despite the commotion Stoke boss Gary Rowett insisted they they would not be submitting a formal complaint.

“Someone said originally that Bradley had bit Joe, but I think Joe said it wasn’t too bad. Certainly we’re not going to have any complaints,” He said at full-time.

“I spoke to the referee, saying it’s not a problem and we don’t want anything further to be looked at. To me, it was just part of a melee.

“Bradley is a great lad and a good professional and I’m pretty sure it wouldn’t have been. Joe said it wasn’t anything too serious. We won’t be making any complaints.”

However Twitter wasn’t nearly as forgiving as Rowett as fans lined up to share their outrage and, as always, the lighter side of the incident.

In 2014 Barcelona striker Luiz Suarez was suspended for all forms of football for four months for a string of biting offences during his time with Liverpool and the Uruguayan national team.

The FA may choose to press charges on Johnson.
