Video: Liverpool star Sadio Mane escapes sending off for nasty kick out vs Everton

Posted by

Just seconds before Richarlison clattered Thiago Alcantara with a reckless challenge during Everton vs Liverpool, Sadio Mane produced an act that should’ve also seen him given the marching orders.

After an aerial duel with Yerry Mina sent the forward to the floor in the 88th minute of the tie, Mane showed his nasty side by kicking out and tripping the central defender afterwards.

Luckily for Mane, the attention was all on Richarlison – who was rightfully sent off for a horror challenge.

But, Mane perhaps should’ve been sent down the tunnel for this as he was already on a yellow card, with the ace picking up a booking for clattering Lucas Digne in the 67th minute.

Mane might actually have Mina to thank for staying on the pitch, it seem as though the Colombian didn’t react at all or even notice the intentional trip.

We can’t imagine what Liverpool and Everton fans felt like during this action-packed tie, but it was certainly a treat for neutrals and the perfect way to kick off the Premier League’s return after the break.

  1. I have a question for Michael Oliver, why send off Richardlison for a bad tackle when you apply the same law hypocritically and do not send off Mane for something equally bad? Michael, if you read this, I’d like your response.

    1. Yes. Thank you for asking me this question. I was wondering why no one else asked me this. You should be a reporter. The reason I did not book Mane is because I like Liverpool better than Everton and was biased against them. I hope this answers your very inciteful question on this random webpage that I was able to read and reply directly back to you on. Godspeed Gerald Mcloughlin!

    2. Sorry lad, what are you on? You want to compare Richarlison’s leg breaker with a probably intentional trip? The question is rather: If Richarlison was sent off after the game had been stopped for a previous infringement, how on Earth did Pickford stay on with the excuse that the game was interrupted at the time?

    3. Also why was Robinson’s SH tackle from behind not a sending off as for van dyke he was trying to take an Everton player in the form of DCL or Rodriguez within the first 5 mins but that also went unpunished

  2. Why was Robinson’s SH tackle from behind on Allan not a sending off, did anyone notice Robinson assumed slip when Allan was running in behind him s**t himself and fell over, as for VVD he was trying to take an Everton player out from the off with fouls on DCL and James within the first 5 mins , no mention of any of these incidents by biased bt commentary who all just happen to be ex reds
