EPL: Fulham boss, Silva brands Bassey’s red card against Arsenal a joke


Fulham manager, Marco Silva has described Calvin Bassey’s red card in his side’s 2-2 draw against Arsenal a joke.

Bassey was first booked for time wasting five minutes after the break.

The centre-back was sent off seven minutes from time for a foul on Eddie Nketiah.

Silva cut a frustrated figure after the game as he struggled to come to terms with the decision of the centre referee.

“The first yellow card for Calvin is a joke, and of course we understand the new circumstances (rules),” the gaffer told a press conference.

“They are taking all the emotion from the game because it is going to protect the big clubs because you have to see consistency in the decisions.”
