Some Liverpool fans are seething after the Premier League attempted to explain why Harry Kane only got a yellow card for a terrible tackle on Andy Robertson.
The Reds took part in a thrilling Premier League clash on Sunday afternoon, having to make do without the likes of Virgil van Dijk, Fabinho, Jordan Henderson and Thiago.
In the end, Jurgen Klopp’s men had to settle for a 2-2 draw at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, which felt both a fair result and an adequate one from a Liverpool perspective.
Liverpool fans fume at Kane tackle explanation
It is ludicrous reasoning for the decision and these Liverpool supporters have let their feelings be known on Twitter, with one branding the explanation as “pathetic”.
“So basically Robbo should break his leg just to get Kane suspended? Kane went in studs up, with pace and intent and didn’t get the ball and man, isn’t that enough for it to be RED???“
“So we only give out red cards if we break someone’s leg?“
“That nullifies the whole reason behind punishing potential reckless tackles. Just wow.“
“Look what clubs are having to deal with. Absolute idiots“
“Pathetic, so you have to get injured first before you get a red card, what is the point of VAR if we have idiots controlling it?“
