Former midfielder Kevin Kilbane said that Sadio Mane intentionally scolded to bring back a penalty to help Liverpool win Leicester 2-1 yesterday 5/10.
“I don’t think it’s a penalty, although Albrighton has an impact on Mane,” Kevin Kilbane said on the BBC Final Score show. “Mane fell down. The referee will not change the decision, because it’s a collision situation. But it’s not an obvious mistake. I think Mane took the initiative to fall down to get a penalty.”
Kilbane was a Republican of Ireland and had 17 years of playing in English competitions. In the period of 2003-2006, he wore the Everton shirt – the same city rival as Liverpool.
In the third injury-time of the Liverpool-Leicester match yesterday, Marc Albrighton returned to defense but did not understand what Kasper Schmeichel meant when the Leicester keeper came out to catch the ball. As a result, the 11th midfielder stepped on Mane’s foot and made the visitors penalized. James Milner fooled Schmeichel from the spot 11 meters, bringing the 2-1 victory for Liverpool. Earlier, Mane opened the scoring in the 40th minute and James Maddison equalized in the 80th minute.
Liverpool, thanks to Mane’s fall and Milner’s penalty kick, maintained the top of the table with eight wins. On the Leicester side, coach Brendan Rodgers did not hide his disappointment on his return to Anfield – where he had been with for three years.
“As for the penalty, I think it was an unclear penalty,” Mr. Rodgers added. “But when the referee decided to blow the penalty, it was hard for VAR to deny it. Anyway, I am still proud of the players’ performance. Playing fair with Liverpool shows that we are still on the right track at Tournaments”.
Next week, the English Premier League will take a break to make room for the national team playing field. In the next round, two weeks later, Liverpool came to Old Trafford and Leicester welcomed Burnley.
