(Video) Tuchel gives red card verdict for Mane’s challenge on Azpilicueta

Posted by

Thomas Tuchel has claimed that Sadio Mane should have been handed his marching orders for an early challenge on Cesar Azpilicueta.

The Senegalese international was shown a yellow card after his arm made contact with the Spaniard’s face in a battle for an airborne ball but the Chelsea boss suggested that the incident should have been looked at more closely.

Whilst one can understand the Blues boss’ frustrations, the reality of the matter is that challenge was entirely accidental, with there being no indication or hint of intention on the former Southampton ace’s part.

  1. Teams obviously see Sadio as a BIG threat because many teams want him to get sent off, whether it is Atletico or Chelsea. Having said that, if Sadio is sent off for that then Mount should also have been red-carded, if we are going to be CONSISTENT!
