Liverpool fans slam FA ruling after Leeds red card appeal decision made – ‘Awful decision’

“I think he’s been unlucky, no malice in the challenge,” said @JCairns57.

The FA’s decision has come as something of a surprise, given that Elliott himself was understanding of the situation, despite his breakthrough season receiving a killer blow.

Taking to social media after the incident, the 18-year-old said: “Wasn’t his fault whatsoever!

“Neither was it a red card, just a freak accident but these things happen in football. I’ll be back stronger, 100%. Thanks for all the support.”
