Maya Yoshida believes Victor Wanyama did not deserve to be sent off, but the midfielder owes Southampton some doughnuts.
Yoshida netted an early winner to see off West Ham on Saturday evening but the Saints task was made all the more difficult by Wanyama’s 54th-minute dismissal following a tackle on Hammers talisman Dimitri Payet.The decision was “harsh”, according to Yoshida, but the Japan centre-half still expects Wanyama to treat his team-mates as an apology.Yoshida told the Daily Star: “After Victor was sent off it was a really tough last 20 minutes but there was great team spirit to keep the three points,” the Japanese centre-half said.
“The decision was a little bit tough I think, he probably deserved a yellow card.
“Victor has to pay us back now, maybe some Krispy Kreme doughnuts for the players.”
