Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock argued that Joe Ralls shouldn’t have been sent off against Tottenham Hotspur because his challenge didn’t endanger life.
The Bluebirds midfielder was shown the red card for a wild and cynical lunge on Spurs forward Lucas Moura when the two sides met at Wembley on Saturday.
Defending his player in a post-match interview, Warnock said:
It’s not endangering the life of a player, so I don’t know why it’s a red card.
Spurs won the match 1-0 thanks to an early goal from Eric Dier.
Attempted murder = yellow
Certain death = red / penalty ( if in the area )
