Mee has responded to those comments, and the 29-year-old defender - who earns £28,000 per week as salary, according to Spotrac.com - has defended his challenge.
The Burnley defender told BBC Sport: "I've seen Liverpool make tackles and get the crowd up and things like that. For me, you can play fair, but you can also play hard as well.
"We're at the bottom of the table and we need to get out of it, so we're obviously going to work our socks off to win games. It was just unfortunate and I send my best wishes to him [Gomez].”
Mee’s challenge was not exactly bad, and it is clear that the Burnley defender did not mean to hurt Gomez.
It is just unfortunate that the 21-year-old defender suffered the injury, and hopefully the England international will be back soon and will be back to his best.
While Liverpool are challenging for the Premier League title this season, Burnley are in danger of getting relegated to the Championship.
