Ex-Premier League referee gives verdict on Liverpool penalty decision

Former Premier League referee Dermot Gallagher has given his verdict on Liverpool penalty decision made by Chris Kavanagh against Leicester City.

Kavanagh gave Merseyside club a stoppage time penalty after Marc Albrighton’s challenge against Sadio Mane. James Milner scored to give Liverpool another three points in title race.

“We talk about it because of how Mane went down, he didn’t go down too well, but I think it is a foul and once you give a foul, you have to give a penalty. The problem we have is that we talk about minimal contact and going down theatrically, he does do that, but I do think he was fouled.” Gallagher said.
