Why are we not surprised…?
Despite clearly kicking Brighton player Gaetan Bong at the weekend, Romelu Lukaku has been cleared of any wrongdoing and will not face a ban – BBC Sport confirm.
During United’s scrappy victory over the newly promoted side, Lukaku blatantly kicked out at his opponent on two occasions, but despite the referee not seeing it, an FA panel has deemed the Belgian’s crimes not sufficient of a ban.
Naturally, Liverpool fans took to the internet in droves to complain about the decision, especially considering they wouldn’t overturn Sadio Mane’s red-card from earlier this season.
Again, it’s one rule for United and one rule for everyone else.
This was a deliberate act of violence. In comparison Mane was attempting to flick a 50/50 ball over an advancing goalkeeper. Maybe the FA should bring in a rule where no Utd player is allowed to be tackled. They may as well.
