Tyrone Mings stamped on Nelson Oliveira’s face
Tyrone Mings joined Aston Villa on loan from Bournemouth on transfer deadline day.
Mings had only played in seven matches for Bournemouth this season.
On his debut for Villa against Reading, Mings was involved in a horrible incident.
The Villa centre-half, wearing the number 40, stamped on Nelson Oliveira’s face.
Mings appeared to land his studs in Oliveira’s kisser by accident.
The incident happened after Mings had intercepted the ball as Oliveira tried to break forward.

The Reading forward was left with a face gushing with blood after the coming together.
For the record Mings wasn’t booked.

@FA will you be investing this face stamp by Tyrone Mings and the frankly diabolical refereeing performance today? #readingfc

#avfc at risk of losing Tyrone Mings after one game. Fell true to form and stamped on another head. Disgusting player. No interest in having him at our club. Get shut Villa. https://t.co/Fe5k43LFMh

Decent performance and game that, both ‘keepers having blinders. Our threat went with Oliveira having to going off. Avoidable from Tyrone Mings? Absolutely. #readingfc #avfc

Tyrone Mings has previous head stamping. Needs the book throwing at him. #REAvAVL #ReadingFC
