Sevilla midfielder Ever Banega was blasted by Liverpool fans after he elbowed youngster Harry Wilson in today’s preseason friendly between the two sides.
Sevilla star Ever Banega shocked Liverpool fans during the Reds’ preseason clash against the La Liga outfit today, the midfielder appeared to elbow youngster Harry Wilson.
Wilson showed off some lovely skill to knock the ball past the Argentina international, but Banega came across the youngster and it looked as though he knocked the winger to the floor with an elbow.
It’s surprising to see that the 31-year-old wasn’t sent off for his unnecessary and foul challenge.
Check out the Argentine’s elbow on the youngster below:

Banega not even sorry. Doesn’t bother coming over to see if Wilson is alright.
Someone just needs to kneecap the prick. Well worth a red. Friendly or not i want to see him nailed

Should be off for combination of fouls and arguing with official

Wilson has just got a tough one by an arm in the face from Banega. Sevilla have been really naughty in this half. Liverpool may have been worried about the pitch but it's the Sevilla players who are proving dangerous.

I’m not sure Ever Banega realises this is a friendly. Some mad challenges flying in here.

How did Banega just get away with that elbow?

How on earth is Banega still on the pitch after throwing an elbow into Wilson's face, considering he is already on a yellow card?

I know it is just a friendly, but it is pretty clear that no one told Banega this. Dude plays like it is the last game of the season and everything is on the line. How he did not get a second yellow for that elbow, I do not know. #LFC

It’s astonishing to see Banega playing so aggressively, Liverpool fans believe the Sevilla star should have been sent off for his dirty tactics.
