ESPN Host Dan Thomas on what former Premier League referee & Newcastle fan Mark Clattenberg said about Virgil van Dijk’s red card:

“Mark Clattenberg text me and said ‘I understand the call that it’s a foul the referee thinks it’s denying a goalscoring opportunity. I never thought red at the time and I still do not think it’s a clear and obvious red card.’”
