It’s A Red ; Guardiola Said Milner Should Have Been Sent Off

Posted by

Guardiola believes James Milner should have been sent off in Liverpool’s 2-2 draw with Manchester City, while Micah Richards has called referee Paul Tierney’s decision to not remove Milner “ridiculous” and a “shocker.”

Milner avoided a second yellow card after a blatant foul on Bernardo Silva midway through the second half, despite Tierney ruling that the stand-in Liverpool right-back had not fouled Phil Foden for a first-half penalty.

Milner was substantially involved in Liverpool’s second goal minutes later before being substituted.

Guardiola screamed angrily on the touchline at Tierney for refusing to caution Milner a second time, and afterwards told Sky Sports: “It’s a yellow card. It’s clear. It’s Anfield, it’s Old Trafford. In our situation a City player is sent off. It’s too much clear. It was a second yellow.”
