Simon Jordan and Piers Morgan row in Souness’ ‘man’s game’: ‘Get over yourself’

Simon Jordan and Piers Morgan have jumped to the defense of Graeme Souness after the Sky Sports pundit was criticized for using the term “man’s game” following Chelsea’s Premier League clash with Tottenham on Sunday. Spurs stunned their hosts when they grabbed a point in the 96th minute of the match thanks to Harry Kane’s equaliser.

The clash at Stamford Bridge, which followed Nottingham Forest’s 1-0 win against West Ham, proved a topsy-turvy affair as both sides battled for dominance. And after the game, Souness told the crowd: “The refs let it go a lot more and it makes it look better. We’ve all played the game, with simulations and people getting knocked down.

“I haven’t seen it in the two games today. Now it’s a man’s game all of a sudden.” He also insisted that “boys will be boys” when asked about the crisis between Blues manager Thomas Tuchel and Spurs boss Antonio Conte.

The comments drew criticism from a range of people, including Bethany England, who was an unused substitute when England’s women’s team defeated Germany to lift the Euro 2022 trophy last month. “‘It’s a man’s game,’ ‘men in it,'” he wrote Twitter. “Go to the bin, what an embarrassing thing to say after the summer this country has just seen.”

But Jordan entered the debate on Monday morning to shout out England. “Oh dear,” she wrote Twitter. “This is what has been reduced. Apparently a man describing a game with men cannot use the word men or man in conjugation with a game featuring only men! Get over yourselves, make equality and injustice!”

Morgan also shared Jordan’s stance as he made his views clear on Sunday evening thanks to a sarcastic post on Twitter. “I am outraged and disgusted that Graeme Souness used the words ‘man’s game’ when referring specifically to an incident in a man’s game played by two men’s teams,” he wrote. “Especially when we’ve spent the last few weeks talking about the ‘women’s game’.”

Tuchel and Conte were shown red cards after the final whistle at Stamford Bridge following a heated exchange between the pair as they shook hands.

The emphatic game saw Kalidou Koulibaly open the scoring for Chelsea with a stunning volley midway through the first half. Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg equalized for Spurs midway through the second period, before Reece James put the home side ahead again with 12 minutes remaining. But Spurs grabbed a share of the spoils when Kane turned in Ivan Perisic’s corner.
