Graeme Souness slams Anthony Taylor

first_imgPundit Graeme Souness has blasted referee Anthony Taylor for not sending off Watford’s Etienne Capoue for a challenge on Wilfried Zaha.Etienne Capoue was shown only a yellow card for a dangerous tackle on Wilfried Zaha, however, Souness disagreed with the referee’s decision and also hit out at the Watford player.“He (Capoue) set out to nail Zaha,” Souness told Sky Sports.“Just look where the referee is. What is he, three, four yards away from it? For the life of me, how does the referee not see that as a red card?“It tells me one of two things: he’s completely bottled it, or he doesn’t understand football.Joel Ward, Crystal PalaceHow Joe Ward thanks his faith for his football Manuel R. Medina – September 13, 2019 Crystal Palace defender, Joel Ward, has thanked his Christian faith for helping him play football professionally and he explains why.“He (Capoue) is trying to hurt him badly. When you damage your Achilles tendon badly, which there was a real danger of happening there, you’re never the same player again.“The referee, for me… I find it so frustrating. You can’t just say he got it wrong. It’s not as if he has got an obscured view. It’s not as if it could be or might be a red card.“That is 100 per cent a red card. There’s leaving a bit on someone, and there’s real malice in that, trying to injure him for a long, long time.”Fellow pundits Jamie Redknapp and Alan Smith both agreed with Souness that Capoue should have been sent off for that challenge.last_img
