Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink: Naby Keita

Chelsea legend Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink believes that Naby Keita should have seen red after his dangerous challenge on Trevor Chalobah. The Chelsea defender later revealed that the challenge required him to get stitches while he was critical of referee Stuart Atwell for not awarding a foul. Keita was in the starting line-up due to a late injury to Thiago.

“Had to get stitches because of this. The referee is right there I don’t get it?” Chalobah posted on Twitter.

“I’m surprised that nothing was said about it,” Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink said about the Naby Keita challenge. “If you look at Keita’s movement, he slows down and then he goes for the tackle but totally misses the ball and he hits the player really hard. For me, that is endangering the opposition and that should be a red card. I don’t understand that the referee didn’t see it and I don’t understand at all that VAR hasn’t seen it because this is a really bad foul. I’m very, very, very surprised.”

“He knows what he’s doing because he doesn’t get injured, but he stays on the floor like he is hit. He knows ‘oh, I might be wrong here, I might be late’. He is significantly late. I don’t want to see players being sent off – it would have spoiled the game – but this is a really bad tackle,” he added. “I think he refereed the game really well. He let it flow, the game was really good. I think there were no really bad tackles, apart from that one. Chalobah was really lucky to be able to play on. It was very dangerous.”
