Gaston Ramirez’s dismissal against Tottenham Hotspur was key to Hull City’s defeat. That everyone agrees.
According to former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher, it was not a red-card offence.
“It was never a sending off, it wasn’t even a booking,” the ex-England international told Sky Sports.
“I always think 'what do rugby lads think watching football?' There’s a tangle of legs and a smack on the backside! It’s nothing, it’s not a yellow card in my opinion. The linesman sent him off.”
Another Liverpool great, Michael Owen, was watching Sunday’s event unfold at the KC Stadium, but he had a different view of the red-card incident.
“That's why I couldn't be a manager,” the former Manchester United star wrote on Sportlobster.com.
“1-0 up and in control until one of your players shows immaturity beyond belief to get himself sent off and let down everyone. Steve Bruce must be fuming. Its hard enough to win games as it is.”
The red-card incident will divide opinions, but at the end of the day, it is Tottenham who won the match.
And that’s the main aspect of the game.
