FA dismiss Liverpool's appeal for Sadio Mane red card suspension

Postado Setembro 14, 2017

Sadio mane, 25, was issued a red card for lifting his foot too high in a challenge against City's Brazillian goalkeeper Ederson.

The Merseyside giants had been understandably keen to see the ban reduced as they and many others felt there was a case for saying Moss' decision was harsh. That made his decision subconsciously. A tackle that endangers the safety of an opponent must be sanctioned as serious foul play'.

The Reds were thumped at the Etihad Stadium as City capitalised on Sadio Mane's 37th-minute dismissal and consigned Jurgen Klopp to his heaviest defeat since taking the managerial reins at Anfield.

He will now miss Saturday's Premier League match against Burnley and two games at Leicester City, one in the league and one in the League Cup.

Sergio Aguero put Manchester City ahead, and then a challenge from Sadio Mane with Ederson for the ball was to prove the biggest talking point afterwards.

"On the other side of the coin as a Liverpool supporter, part of me wants him to stay".

"I don't think that is a red card".

The Premier League returned from the worldwide break with a mouthwatering clash between Manchester City and Liverpool at the Etihad. We did it and, as I said after the game, it was a waste of time obviously. But from a player, and I've been in that situation, the chance to join Barcelona would be enormous for him. After such an impressive result there is no reason to make changes because it's such an important thing for a defence being settled, especially against such an offensive team when you've got to trust your teammates.

"I'm not sure it's that easy but if it's that easy it's cool, I have only to bring Phil in and everything is good again", he said.

"It happens in any sport, sometimes there is a certain moment or occasion when things happen the wrong way". This isn't a case of forgetting about a awful result, especially considering it turned out to be Liverpool's second biggest defeat in the Premier League era.
