They checked it on VAR cant see how they can go against that
It would just be the opposite way around of the Son red card being overturned retrospectively.
I thought he was lucky not to be sent off, though Holgate was provoking him by going so needlessly tight behind him and having a niggle at him with his knee (conveniently overlooked on MOTD).
Ajeti had also been bundled overafter beating his man with no attempt to play the ball a few moments earlier and the ref was looking straight at the incident and did nothing.
MOTD stitched Ajeti up by singing Holgate's praises for three minutes before showing the inicident. They even dismissed the latter's over-reaction/simulation in their absolute condemnation of Ajeti.
There was some irony that Alan Elbows Shearer and Ian Two-footed-studs-up-lunge Wright were the oh-so-outraged judges.
I liked that he came on full of energy and fight. Haller could do with some of that passion.
I think Ajeti deserves far more opportunity to show what he can do.
On the other hand, if he gets a ban then would we notice the difference?
