Tuchel Sends Message To Liverpool Star After His Elbow Incident On Azpilicueta

“If you remember the first game with the same referee and how quick he was to give a red card to us…” Thomas Tuchel told Sky Sports when asked about Sadio Mane’s early booking.

“I am not a friend of early red cards. I hate to say it because I love Mane and he is a nice guy and top player, but it is a red card.

“The elbow is in the face – it doesn’t matter if you do this after 20 seconds or 20 minutes.

“We come from a game against Brighton where we miss VAR calls in the box and suddenly VAR is checking a goal against Kovacic.”
