Arsenal defender David Luiz clearly has a revenge against Premier League referees after his contentious dismissal against Wolves a couple of weeks ago.
The Brazilian conceded a penalty as the Gunners led 1-0 at Molineux, while also being denied a scoring opportunity and shown a red card as a result.
Luiz’s red card was not much different from the tackle that knocked Bukayo Saka to the ground in Leeds United’s penalty area on Sunday afternoon, with referee Craig Pawson pointing to the penalty spot, just as his colleague Stuart Attwell did. in the Wolves.
However, after consulting with Andre Marriner about the VAR, and having seen reruns of the incident on the field side monitor, the decision was overturned, with no penalty awarded.
That was despite Luiz’s attempt to intervene in the decision-making progress. Read below what the former Chelsea and PSG player yelled in the referee’s direction in reference to his own sending off against Wolves.
I’m not saying that David Luiz holds a grudge, but … as the referee looked at the monitor, he yelled “penalty and red card, like in Wolverhampton”
