Liverpool is likely to appeal to McAllister red

After 58 minutes, Alexis Mac Allister’s home debut ended in a red, as referee Thomas Brammall pulled the red card from his chest pocket.

Many thought the situation was moot. Among them was a former scorer and expert Gary Lineker. On Twitter/X he writes:

“Mac Allister sees red but it’s rubbish. The referee and VAR at Anfield are having a bad day.”

Bournemouth coach Andoni Iraola stated:

– I don’t know. In real life, it doesn’t look like a red card.

Former Liverpool striker Michael Owen He wrote: “Never in the world has there been a red card for McCallister. Maximum yellow.”

This is what Jürgen Klopp said when asked about the incident after the match:

– Yes, I saw him again. I think the number of times I’ve been asked about it already shows that it’s worth discussing it again, which we will probably do. I’ve seen him again now, in the match I couldn’t.

Liverpool might complain

According to Klopp, McAllister must have told him he had no contact with Bournemouth’s Ryan Christie but had barely touched the Scot.

– That was all he told me. After the match, I watched it again and I think if you had a list of what it takes to give a red card, I think most of them, except for contact, didn’t check any other boxes at that moment. I think it’s a decision we all agree that if he gives a yellow card, the VAR won’t overrule it.

– He gave a red card and the video assistant referee did not change it because the contact means that it is not clear and clear. Wrong, but I think a 40-minute penalty with 10 men in this weather today is already a penalty enough, but let’s see. I don’t know. We need to talk to the authorities.

Klopp was not happy given that Paul Tierney and Constantine Hatzidakis were the VAR duo at Anfield. Many responded to the fact that Tierney did not ask Judge Bramall to look at the screen.

It goes without saying that stopping the Argentine does not suit Newcastle (b), Aston Villa (at home) and Wolverhampton (b) in the upcoming matches.
