Roy Keane accused Ryan Yates of being ‘too honest’ after Nottingham Forest were denied a penalty following a moment of contact between the midfielder and Liverpool No.1 Alisson Becker.
VAR decided that there was no illegal contact to point to between the 24-year-old and the Brazilian international, with the former being criticised by the pundit for not angling his run into the shotstopper to win a spot-kick.
Given how often commentators lambast players for attempting to force a call from the official or VAR, it’s a bizarre piece of advice from the Irishman when we should surely be applauding the Forest star for playing a clean game.
