Global Sports : Chelsea To Appeal Matic Red Card

posted in: News | 0

Chelsea will contest the red card shown to midfielder Nemanja Matic during Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Burnley, according to Sky sources.
The Serb was sent off by referee Martin Atkinson for reacting angrily to a tackle by Ashley Barnes and pushing over the Clarets forward at Stamford Bridge.
Matic is set to miss Sunday’s Capital One Cup final against Tottenham but would be available for the Wembley showpiece if the appeal is successful.
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho was furious with the decision, revealing his thoughts on Goals on Sunday.
“This could be end of career. Because I can’t find another adjective stronger, I just say this is end of career. Matic is a lucky guy,” he said.
“Another club would maybe have the power to appeal and as I was listening to people with some good feeling of honesty. It comes from people without any connection with Chelsea and comes from people with miles and miles on the pitch at a high level.
“I can’t find the word to describe what that player did. I can clearly understand that football is about emotions and sometimes you lose emotions.
“Clearly Matic had a reason to lose his emotions. What could be the consequence of his push for the other player? Nothing. The consequence for Matic could be end of career.”
