Andy Carroll (Reading) became the target of ridicule.
The British media Daily Star reported on the 29th (hereinafter Korean time), ‘Carol, a star who has been on the stage of the English Premier League (EPL) in the past, made a reckless challenge to Casemiro (Man Utd). He deserved to be sent off,’ it was reported. 스포츠토토
Reading played the 2022-2023 season England Football Association (FA) Cup Round of 32 against Manchester United at Old Trafford in Manchester, England on the 29th. Carroll, who played for Newcastle, Liverpool, and West Ham in the past, entered the ground as a starting striker that day. The situation was not good. Reading was dragged into the second half by allowing Casemiro to score consecutively.
The situation in question occurred in the 20th minute of the second half when Reading was down 0-2. Carroll made a rough tackle on Casemiro. The referee immediately gave out a yellow card. Carroll, who had received a yellow card just five minutes earlier, had to leave the ground due to an accumulated yellow card. Reading, who was outnumbered, lost 1-3 with an additional goal.
The Daily Star said, ‘Carol’s tackle had a great impact. But even more surprising was that Carroll was still running.” According to the media’s report, fans thought ‘Carol was a retired player until he was sent off’, ‘Is Carroll still playing football? He’s not doing it right,’ etc.
