“For me football is football, the Premier League will be English football and for me, that red card is a strange one.
“But I don’t want to focus on that because my team lost and I have to be complementary to my opponents because they had the better handle on the game.”

“I saw nothing, I saw the referee follow the protocol, he came to (fourth official referee) Andre Marriner, he came to me and Frank Lampard and told us what was happening.”
