Fans believe a second Chelsea player should have been given red card for tackle on Real Madrid star
During last night’s game between Chelsea and Real Madrid, Mason Mount, a star player of Chelsea, faced criticism from fans for his tackle on Dani Carvajal, a player from the opposing team. Fans believe that the tackle was so bad that Mount should have been sent off the pitch. Adding to the frustration, the Blues were already playing with ten men by the time Mount was substituted on with just fifteen minutes left to play.
The decision-making of French referee Francois Letexier did not sit well with the fans, who expressed their disappointment on social media platforms. One fan commented that Mount’s tackle on Carvajal was a “cynical challenge,” as he caught him straight on the shin. Another fan added that it was Mount’s first involvement in the game, and it was a stomp to Carvajal’s shin.
A disapproving fan even compared Mount’s tackle to Casemiro’s challenge and sarcastically suggested that the former should get a six-month ban for his action. Meanwhile, another stunned viewer thought that Mount deserved a red card for his tackle on Carvajal, as he went there to kick him and caught him high on the shin.
In conclusion, Mount’s tackle on Carvajal during the game between Chelsea and Real Madrid left many fans disappointed, and some believed that he should have been sent off the pitch for his actions. The French referee’s decision-making also received criticism from the fans.
