Manchester United defender Guillermo Varela has hit back at Eintracht Frankfurt after he was suspended and fined by the club for getting a tattoo against the wishes of coach Niko Kovac.
News broke earlier this week that the 24-year-old would be returning to United, his parent club with immediate effect, a move which meant the Uruguayan would miss this weekend’s DFB Pokal final. In an official statement, Frankfurt announced that Varela’s arm had become infected and that he would head back to Manchester effectively bringing an end to his season long loan deal. But Varela has hit back at the club’s handling of the situation: "I've been nailed to the cross as if I'd violently attacked the coach or done something else," he told German magazine Sueddeutsche Zeitung. "I wonder what Real Madrid would have to do with Sergio Ramos. He gets tattooed every week. I can't explain why I've been punished so hard." Varela went onto add that he would "never do anything to harm my team" and that he feels his name has been "besmirched" as a consequence. Sun, May 28, 2017 01:30:00 PM
