Troy Deeney: Watford captain asked by Football Association to explain comments he made after game against Bournemouth

The Football Association has asked Troy Deeney to explain some comments he made after his Watford side’s 3-3 draw with Bournemouth.

Watford captain Deeney’s post-match interview sent social media into a frenzy after accusing referee David Coote of “bottling it” when making decisions during the game.

Deeney also claimed Bournemouth’s Dan Gosling of “trying to do” Tom Cleverley in a tackle.

The striker scored twice in the six-goal thriller and admitted he felt Hornets team-mate Abdoulaye Doucoure was “lucky” to have not been sent off for a tackle on Cherries midfielder Ryan Fraser.

And Fraser, who was stood next to Deeney when he was being interviewed, raised his eyebrows in reaction to the comments.

Deeney said: “Doucoure probably did get lucky [not to be sent off], but you can’t tell me that their boy [Gosling] did not try to do Tom Cleverley.

“They know it. We know. But the referee bottled it on a few occasions.”
