Roy Hodgson was livid with Luka Milivojevic’s purple card throughout Crystal Palace’s 2-Zero defeat at Wolves – and Tony Cascarino agrees the choice was extremely harsh.
The Eagles slipped to a 2-Zero defeat on Friday night time, however the principle speaking level was Milivojevic’s problem on Joao Moutinho.
Whereas the sort out appeared harmful in actual time, replays confirmed the Serbian truly received the ball earlier than following by means of on Moutinho’s ankle.
Nonetheless, Martin Atkinson brandished the purple card after consulting the pitch-side monitor, a lot to the outrage of Palace boss Hodgson.
He mentioned: “I don’t assume it was just a little bit harsh, I believe it was ridiculously harsh as a result of I don’t even assume it was a foul.
“I’ve mentioned that to the referee, he is aware of what I give it some thought, however I can’t presumably stand right here and say I assumed it was a foul.
“I’ve seen it on the replay like everyone else and I see Milivojevic successful the ball and making no intention in anyway to make any contact with Moutinho.”
In the meantime, talkSPORT host Cascarino will get Hodgson’s frustration and suggests the pitch-side monitor makes tackles look worse.
He mentioned: “If you happen to take a look at the images, it appears to be like fairly severe, however when you watch it in regular play, he will get the ball. Is it a purple card? No.
“It appears to be like worse as a result of you’ll be able to freeze body a photograph, however I believe it’s a real effort to get the ball.
“It’s a foul, however it’s a yellow at worst.”
