Diogo Dalot was sent off for an extremely bizarre reason during Manchester United’s trip to Liverpool

Diogo Dalot was doing an excellent job for Manchester United before he earned himself a suspension during stoppage time. The 24-year-old was excellently challenging Mo Salah before the ball went out of play at the 90+4 minute mark.

It looked like the ball went out off of Salah, Despite this the call was in Liverpool’s favour who then gained possession. This infuriated Dalot who then proceeded to punch the air to show his anger at the call.

Immediately game official Micheal Oliver whipped out 2 yellow cards and the Manchester United defender was on his way out. Fans all over the internet have expressed their dissatisfaction with Oliver’s harsh call.

Manchester United’s manager was left speechless after looking at the Diogo Dalot suspension. While speaking to the media the Dutchman even refused to give his thoughts on the topic, “I’ll leave it with you” said Ten Hag.

The only thing that Dalot did was show his passion during that moment. A single yellow would’ve been a harsh punishment for that slight outburst. However, Oliver showed 2 yellows within 5 seconds.

Being penalised for showing your emotions is not something that sits right with a lot of football fans. There has also been some talk of Manchester United preparing to appeal Dalot’s red card.

While the game’s officials deserve to be respected. Micheal Oliver’s decision to send Dalot off is not one that is worthy of respect. If the defender was sent off 10 minutes earlier the consequences could have been grave.

In an even tougher spot are Manchester United who will have to take on West Ham without the presence of their 24-year-old defender.
