He should have seen red in the game imo. Isn't VAR supposed to catch an incident like this?

However, I don't think a two game suspension is warranted. Thoughts?

Keeper should also see a red, then. One yellow for the initiation of the altercation, one for rolling around and acting like a bitch to draw attention to it and try and get Zlatan thrown out.

By the rules, yeah, a red...but when I heard "He wrapped his hand around a player's throat", I was expecting something far worse and explicit.

About the same as a certain local youth coach did to a player during training a few years ago :dead:
