Real Sociedad manager David Moyes provided soccer fans with one of the funniest moments in recent memory after coming down with a case of the munchies after taking a red card in Copa Del Rey action on Wednesday.
Moyes was ejected from his team’s match against Villarreal after arguing an offside call. But instead of heading to the dressing room, like most players and managers would do, Moyes jumped a security barrier and headed to the stands to sit with the fans.
An internet sensation was born the moment he accepted a fan’s offer of some cheese puffs. Moyes was caught munching away by television cameras. It was refreshing to see a manager take a different approach to being kicked off the touchline.
Moyes team may have lost the match 3-2 but in the end that’s not we will remember. The videos made sports casts around the world and also went viral on social media.
The true impact of Moyes comical actions and the social media storm they created are highlighted more in my recent post on RantSports. Please feel free to offer RedCardTheRef some complimentary munchies any time and feel free to share the link below with your fellow supporters and friends:
