“The referee is there to referee the game, he’s two metres away. Whether Neves goes down or doesn’t go down – that is immaterial.
“That is a leg breaker. Look how close the referee is, that’s a leg breaker.
“Any player who has ever played the game, he’s standing two yards away from it, they will tell you that’s a dangerous challenge.”
“That referee has deemed that not a foul. That is impossible for anyone who knows anything about football to say that’s not a foul.”
