Babel In Hot Water With FA

The Football Association are deliberating whether Liverpool forward Ryan Babel should face disciplinary over his public criticism of referee Howard Webb on Twitter. Babel posted a Photoshopped picture of referee Howard Webb wearing a Manchester United shirt following his side's 1-0 defeat at Old Trafford.The whole of the Liverpool team and management staff were not happy with Webb’s decisions to award United a penalty early in the game, then to send of captain Steve Gerard for a lunge on Michael Carrick in the 31st minute.Babel wrote: "And they call him one of the best referees? That's a joke. SMH (shaking my head)."Later he added: "My apology if they take my posted pic seriously. This is just an emotional reaction after losing an important game."Sorry Howard Webb."
