Fulham’s Marco Silva says VAR should have called for Malo Gusto red card | Chelsea

Fulham’s Marco Silva says VAR should have called for Malo Gusto red card | Chelsea

[ad_1] Marco Silva put the focus on what he said was an error from the video assistant referee, insisting Chelsea’s Malo Gusto should have been sent off in the 38th minute and suggesting it would have altered the course of an eventual 1-0 defeat for his Fulham team. Gusto crashed into Willian’s shin with the score at 0-0, having missed the ball with his attempted tackle and the referee, Anthony Taylor, showed him a yellow card. Silva waited for the VAR, Michael Salisbury, to suggest Taylor should reconsider but the original decision would be allowed to stand. Silva said: “The mistake from the VAR in my opinion, in our opinion … you understand the conversation I had with the fourth official. It’s a clear red card in that situation. “It’s difficult for Anthony Taylor to see if it’s red card or not – he decided yellow card and we have to be fair for him because in the moment it’s really quick for him to see that it was such a dangerous tackle from Malo Gusto. “But after that has to …

Fulham’s Silva sees red over yellow card for Chelsea’s Gusto

[ad_1] LONDON : Fulham coach Marco Silva decried a decision not to send off Chelsea’s Malo Gusto in his side’s 1-0 defeat by their west London rivals on Saturday, and Chelsea’s Mauricio Pochettino could understood Silva’s frustration. Referee Anthony Taylor showed Gusto a yellow card for his foul on former Chelsea winger Willian in the 38th minute, even though the France defender carried through after winning the ball and landed his boot on the Brazilian’s ankle. “In the Premier League, in 10 moments like that one, nine have been a red card,” Silva told reporters. The Portuguese coach said he thought it was a clear mistake by the VAR team not to advise Taylor to reconsider his decision. Chelsea won the derby 1-0 after Cole Palmer coolly converted a penalty in the dying minutes of the first half after Fulham’s Issa Diop had brought down Chelsea’s Raheem Sterling. Pochettino acknowledged Silva’s frustration about the decision. “Of course, if I am put in his place I am going to tell you it’s a red card,” the …

De Silva replaces Karunaratne as Sri Lanka test captain

[ad_1] COLOMBO : All-rounder Dhananjaya de Silva will take over from Dimuth Karunaratne as captain of Sri Lanka’s test side, the country’s cricket board (SLC) said on Thursday. Karunaratne skippered Sri Lanka in 30 tests over four years, winning 12, losing 12 and drawing six. Spin-bowling all-rounder de Silva, who has played 51 tests, will begin his tenure with a one-off test against Afghanistan next month. The change comes after SLC replaced Dasun Sanaka as white-ball captain on Sunday, putting Kusal Mendis and Wanindu Hasaranga in charge of the one-day and T20 squads respectively. Sri Lanka finished ninth of 10 teams at the 50-overs World Cup in India late last year, which prompted SLC to install a new selection committee led by former opener Upul Tharanga. [ad_2] Source link
