Decision To Send Off Liverpool's Sadio Mane Seriously Divides Opinion

Decision To Send Off Liverpool's Sadio Mane Seriously Divides Opinion
By PJ Browne Updated

Sadio Mané was sent off with less than 10 minutes to play in the first half between Liverpool and Man City at Eastlands. It was a decision from referee Jon Moss which has divided opinion.

Moss adjudged Mané to be guilty of dangerous play after he challenged Man City keeper Ederson with a high boot as he raced onto a ball over the top of the Man City defence.

On co-commentary for Sky Sports, Gary Neville was adamant that it should not have been a red card.

It won't look good on the replay. In real time, I don't think anyone in the stadium felt that it wasn't a genuine attempt to play the ball.

I don't think he needed to give a red card. I wasn't expecting a red card. Give a yellow if you think you have to. I think he's got it wrong.

Others - including Gary Neville's brother - believe it was the correct decision from the referee.

After a lengthy period getting treatment on the pitch, Ederson left the game, being replaced by Claudio Bravo.
