Rooney Tweets – Suarez Should Have Been Sent Off

By on February 7, 2012

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney believes Luis Suarez should have been sent off for kicking Tottenham midfielder Scott Parker during last night’s 0-0 at Anfield. 

Suarez started from the bench after returning from his eight match ban for racially abusing Rooney’s team-mate Patrice Evra. The Uruguayan came on for the final half hour and within minutes was caught up in controversy once more. With the ball dropping in the area, Suarez and Parker jostled for position and as the Spurs midfielder headed the ball clear Suarez kicked him in the stomach. You can watch a video of it here.

The referee gave the striker a yellow card for the incident, but Rooney used his personal Twitter account (@waynerooney) to make his feelings clear. The ‘Tweet’ is shown below, where Rooney suggests that if the referee has seen the kick, then he should have shown him a red card instead of a yellow:

    Red card for me. He had no chance of getting the ball. I don’t think he intended to kick him but it was so off target and late that surely it had to be a red.
    If it was not his first game back I think the ref would have sent him off for it.

    In all fairness this is coming from a player who has a history of getting sent off for violent conduct not to mention numerous occasions where he hasn’t been sent off for similar incidents! Practice what you preach you ugly shrek looking mofo

    Rooney is really the person to say who should and shouldn’t be sent off, after every thing the FA scammed for him. He should really keep is big gob shut.

    The amount of times I thought he should have been sent of for dangerous play yet because he plays for Slur “you can’t send off one of my players or I’ll get angry” Red Nose, he doesn’t.

    So Hope Luis scores a first half hatrick at the weekend, see if we can empty Old tiolet like we did a couple of seasons ago.

    As an Englishman, I will still say that Rooney should have had his ban for stamping on a player…in an International match…after the play was over…EXTENDED not shortened.

    Daglish is right the FA is out of control and needs a thorough review and reform by Parliment.

    THEY are the reason the game is in disrepute not individual players. Racism rows and disproportionate bans, meaningless bickering. If not for Blatter the English FA might themselves be looking at sanctions from FIFA.

    The FA could deal with this and every incident by giving red cards post game. one game bans on tackles missed by refs, or even yellow cards after the match.

    Looking at this video, Luis barely makes contact, but is carded anyway. Fine. The FA can say ‘hey additional yellow card’ and hence one game ban for Luis, and there is no (or little) arguement. As long as the rules are followed to the same standard and post game reviews could do that. There are still late, studs up and badly missed tackles.

    The FA has plenty of room for self and game improvement without being hypocritical.
