Sky Sports are claiming that Spurs will appeal against the red card decision that saw Danny Rose dismissed in last night’s defeat to Manchester City at White Hart Lane. After the match, Tim Sherwood voiced his opinion on the crucial decision.
I think Andre got it right in the first place when he called it as a corner,” he said. “But, Unfortunately for us, the linesman decided that Andre got it wrong.
“I think Danny’s making a last-ditch tackle so he’s having to lunge in there a bit. He clearly wins the ball. I think we will appeal.”
With so little cover at left back, Danny’s potential absence could hurt the team, particularly if Jan Vertonghen isn’t fit enough to take his place. Under the circumstances and looking at the footage, an appeal seems a logical way to go.
