Jesse Marsch says Raul Jimenez deserved red card

Jesse Marsch Raul Jimenez

Leeds boss Jesse Marsch believes that Wolves striker Raul Jimenez was deservedly sent off during their 3-2 comeback win in the Premier League. Wolves were coasting in the first half with a two-goal lead before Jimenez was sent off for a foul on goalkeeper Illan Meslier. Bruno Lage was not a fan of the decision to send the Mexican off and singled out the incident for the loss.

“I know one of my assistants talked with the referee and the situation is he already saw the image and he continued with the same opinion, a foul from Raul,” Wolves manager Bruno Lage said. “I think it’s body contact from both players that try to win the ball. After that when you have a chance to see them on TV, as he did, he continued with the same decision. I have nothing more to say about it.”

“I thought it was too high and I asked the fourth official. They said they had reviewed it and did not think it was a red. It looked bad and certainly, Stuart is suffering with it,” Jesse Marsch said about the Raul Jimenez red card. “Certainly, the red card helped massively. And I think it is definitely a double yellow. Deserved, no question for me. I thought it was clear. There was a lot of wild action in the game and probably a tough game to referee. However, for me, he went into the play reckless, so for sure it’s a second yellow for me.”

“If he gets there before the goalkeeper, the goalkeeper gets booked,” Jamie Carragher said. “No one does anything different, it’s just the keeper gets there. When the ball got played through, everyone thought Jimenez was in. I winced when I saw the collision. The intensity of it. It’s coming together at such speed. I was uneasy at him getting the yellow card.”
