Queens Park Rangers supporters are upset at defender Jose Bosingwa who was caught laughing and smiling after the club were relegated after the end of yesterday’s nil-nil draw against Reading.
Bosingwa was snapped laughing and smiling on his way down the tunnel. The timing of Bosingwa’s good mood was incredibly inconsiderate to QPR supporters and the club.
QPR manager Harry Redknapp defended Bosingwa’s actions by saying that the footballer was chatting with Portuguese compatriot Daniel Carrico, the Reading midfielder.
“Jose was only laughing because the lad who played for them came up and spoke to him as they walked off. He wasn’t laughing about getting relegated. You could put a camera on anyone and see them laughing. To start throwing that one at the boy is completely out of order. He was laughing because, as he walked down the tunnel, another foreign lad came up and said something to him and he laughed and put his arm around him. I don’t see what he has done wrong.”
