Although Gaetano Berardi’s red card against Millwall was overturned, many Leeds United fans were still not happy with how the Football Association had dealt with the incident on Twitter.
| An independent Commission has removed Gaetano Berardi’s one-match suspension with immediate effect following a claim of wrongful dismissal
— Leeds United (@LUFC) October 8, 2019
The former Switzerland international defender was shown a straight red card inside the first quarter-of-an-hour in their away trip to the capital after allegedly fouling Tom Bradshaw in the penalty box – with the resulting spot-kick setting the Lions on their way to a 2-1 victory.
An independent Regulatory Commission has since removed the defender’s one-match ban ‘with immediate effect following a claim of wrongful dismissal’, as per an official club statement.
The decision was seen as highly controversial at the time as Berardi did not appear to make contact with the forward, however it appears the decision to rescind his suspension was not enough for fans on social media.
Despite being available for their upcoming game against Birmingham City once the international break is concluded, many of the supporters were angry that no more was done, even in regards to Bradshaw, as Adam Pope claimed no action would be taken against the Millwall forward.
Here are just some of their reactions…
Reverse the result too. Justice is not done.

I guess they are saying that there was a touch, but it merited only a yellow card and a penalty? My word….it get’s worse !!!!
