(Photo) New angle shows Mane shouldn’t have been booked for diving

Posted by

Sadio Mane was shown a yellow card against Aston Villa last night for simulation, but it turns out he probably shouldn’t have been booked.

While it’s easy to say the forward made the most of it, upon second viewing – and at a different angle – it seems contact was made before he hit the deck,

I’m not suggesting it should have been a penalty, as I don’t think it was a foul, but there was contact and perhaps Sadio shouldn’t have been carded.

Let’s just hope he can avoid getting booked for the next few weeks as a suspension to him would be detrimental for us.
