Alexander Mitrovic Responds To Fan Who Lost £855 After He Missed A Penalty
League Two side Oldham Athletic produced a memorable FA Cup win against Premier League side Fulham at the weekend, thanks in part to Alexander Mitrovic's missed penalty in the 84th minute.
Mitrovic decided to step and take the spot-kick, despite coming on as a substitute seconds before, and with his first touch of the game, goalkeeper Daniel Iverson saved his tame effort.
Mitrovic: "For the penalty, we had a small argument and I think it is my job for penalties. [Kamara] did not think like this, but I respect that. I have done the same in the past. I don't have a problem with this, he missed and that is part of football." #FFC pic.twitter.com/JnY0cbd3pr- Ben Dinnery (@BenDinnery) December 29, 2018
The Latics went on to score a historic 88th minute header to seal the third round win at Craven Cottage.
After the full-time whistle, Instagram user Jamie Blyth posted a picture of his unfortunate betting slip and well, he probably didn't expect a response from the man himself.
Mitrovic's penalty miss in the later stages of the game meant that the punter lost £855, so Jamie decided to @Mitrovic in his post. Here's how the conversation went down.
Ahahaha my mate put a screenshot of his bet which Fulham lost and Mitrovic replied giving zero fucks :joy::joy::joy::joy: pic.twitter.com/TLh2mJ9KIg- harry (@HHjones55) January 6, 2019
That's right. The Fulham striker decided to respond to the unlucky punter, but rather than making a kind gesture, the Serbian striker simply replied: "No problem mate."
Jamie then responded, thinking he may have got mixed up. "I meant that I lost out on £855."
But he was mistaken. Alexander Mitrovic is apparently a bit of a joker and in the most brutal end to a conversation ever, he said: "Yes I know."
The use of emoji's here is a joy to behold.
Fulham manager Claudio Ranieri was far from pleased about his side's performance against the League Two side.
"I gave a chance to them to show if I am right or wrong, to see if I am right to choose other players - I am right," he said after the game.
"I did not see desire or passion, I wanted to see desire - show me I am wrong, show me! I am not wrong."
Real controversy at Fulham. They were awarded a penalty, which looked like a case of simulation...only for it to be confirmed by VAR! Resulting penalty by Mitrovic was brilliantly saved by Oldham keeper Iversen..- Manish Bhasin (@_manishbhasin) January 6, 2019
It just wasn't Fulham's day, but Alexander Mitrovic might be my favourite player ever after his latest Instagram antics.
