Sutton United’s FA Cup fairytale turned into a ‘nightmare’ with the resignation of goalkeeper Wayne Shaw on Tuesday, says manager Paul Doswell.
Shaw, 45, was seen to eat a pie on the bench during Monday’s FA Cup loss to Arsenal, after a bookmaker offered odds of 8-1 that he would do so on camera.
The Gambling Commission and Football Association are investigating if there was a breach of betting regulations.
‘He’s made a bad error of judgement, Doswell told BBC Radio 5 live.
Shaw resigned from the National League side less than 24 hours after the cup tie.
‘I spoke to him on the phone and he was crying. In the end we had to almost stop talking to each other because it was that type of conversation,’ said Doswell.
