Captain Cesar Finally Breaks Silence On Incident With Mane During Liverpool Draw

“It’s a clear red. I don’t mind if it’s five seconds into the game, it’s the first action and it’s a clear red,” Cesar Azpilicueta told Sky Sports about Sadio Mane’s booking for elbowing him at the start of the game.

“He doesn’t want to challenge, he doesn’t see the ball, he just wants to lead with the elbow. I honestly don’t understand it. We’ve had these types of decisions recently. The other day, we had two penalties where VAR wasn’t used.

“It was a clear red card and we’re getting these decisions against us which could change the course of the games.

“Always they will say what they think and I understand we’re promoting challenges but sometimes we’re seeing joke penalties given and sometimes we see very dangerous actions and they don’t take action.”

“We don’t see consistency even within the same game, and to me it’s clear a decision like this is clear. I watched the replay, but I didn’t need to. It was a clear red.”

The collision between the Chelsea captain and the Liverpool forward was the first act of the game, and referee Anthony Taylor was understandably reluctant to send Mane off.

VAR, however, should have been able to look at it without bias but it did not look like it was examined at all.
