Speaking after Tuesday’s Premier League clash, Burnley manager Sean Dyche has admitted that he thinks Manchester United defender Luke Shaw should have been sent off for his challenge on Johann Berg Gudmundsson.
During Tuesday match’s first-half, an unusual phrase of play saw left-back Shaw collide with Gudmundsson before Robbie Brady brought down Edinson Cavani just moments later.
However, as the ruling states, the passage of play meant Shaw’s tackle would take precedent over Brady’s and consequently be brought back for a free-kick for Burnley
After a VAR monitor check, referee Kevin Friend decided to issue Shaw with a yellow card and Dyche feels that was the wrong decision, despite the full-back winning the ball.
🗣”On another day he (Shaw) might go off for that”
