On a bus heading to the EFL Cup Final on Sunday was a familiar face to many: Wayne Shaw.
The former Sutton United reserve goalkeeper shot to stardom during the fifth-tier team making it to the last 16 of the FA Cup where they lost 2-0 to Arsenal last Monday.
However, his actions when eating in a pie as an unused sub in the second half of that game sparked investigations by the UK Gambling Commission and the FA after bets were placed at odds of 8-1 on Shaw eating a pie during the game. The day after Sutton’s defeat to Arsenal he resigned.
Shaw, 46, weighs in at over 280 pounds and he has become somewhat of a celebrity, even after #PieGate which saw him lose his job.
It doesn’t seem to be impacting him too much though.
Video has emerged of Shaw, a Southampton fan, heading up to Wembley to watch the EFL Cup final which Saints lost 3-2 to Manchester United.
While on the bus Shaw played up to the crowd who sang songs such as “Get your pasty out!” and “It wasn’t a pie, it was a pasty!” then Shaw acted like a matador, teasing the crowd before pulling out another pasty to chew on.
See the video below for some banter.
