Never aim against Lingard . A punter exults ahead of time and is mocked at the last second of the Premier League.
What had Anthony focused on? (This is the name of the bettor who has gone viral on social networks in spite of himself …). He had bet against Lingard saying he would end the English league with zero goals and zero assists.
This wager seemed to have gone wild and in fact was paid very well. Anthony would win just over 135 pounds with a stake of just 3 pounds. In short, a real bargain. Too good to be true…
So, on the wings of enthusiasm, Anthony has made public his episode to seek comments of appreciation on social networks just minutes from the end of the last game of Manchester United.
In fact, the match was about to end without a goal for Lingard. This would have meant a bet won against all odds. But there is an unwritten rule in the world of bettors: never make the bet public until its actual success.
Which is a bit ours not to sing victory too early. Or the trap maxim "Don't say cat if you don't have it in your bag".
Anthony sang victory too early and was atrociously scoffed as Lingard scored his only league goal in the 98th minute of the last Premier League game. It could not have gone worse. Or maybe yes…
In fact, the other users of social networks mocked him in every way until he went viral. Anthony accepted the defeat with sportiness and also received an unexpected message.
In fact Paddy Power, which is the portal where Anthony had made the bet, decided to give him this money in solidarity.
Anthony thanked but decided not to keep this money but to immediately turn it over to GoFundMe (the British association that fights for the rights of black people discriminated against by the cry of Black Lives Matter).
