The Football Association has rejected Liverpool FC’s appeal for red card branded Sadio Mane in their 5-0 massacre at Manchester City. The FA upheld the three game band slapped on the Senegal ace after a review of the football.
Sadio Mane kicked Manchester City goal keeper Ederson in a karate-like manner to earn his marching off orders in the nightmare defeat for the Reds. The Liverpool attacker is set to miss this weekends clash with Burnley at Anfield to add to the double header away to Leicester City.
Sadio Mane has been a revelation since switching camp from the St Marys at the start of last season. He is the reigning premier league player of month in England and is expected to lead the Reds when they host Spanish side Seville in the UEFA Champions league. Liverpool returns to the continent’s elite club competition for the first time in three years.
