Roy Hodgson Reacts To Zaha Red Card


Roy Hodgson has given his reaction to Wilfried Zaha’s red card in the match against Southampton.

The Crystal Palace talisman picked up a red in the 87th minute of the match which ended in a draw.

Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson has said that his side is not happy about the red card that was shown to Wilfried Zaha during their match against Southampton which ended in a draw at the St Mary’s Stadium. The Eagles took the lead through Zaha in the 41st minute of the match only to see James Ward-Prowse scoring the equaliser in the 77th minute.

Speaking after the match to Palace TV, the veteran manager said, “It is not something we are particularly happy about.”

Hodgson added, “Wilf was playing well, he was consistently fouled throughout the game and, as has happened so often with Wilf in the past, he reacts badly to another situation where he is clearly fouled. The referee hasn’t given it and then he compounds that by clapping the referee and the referee sends him off.”

He concluded, “It is not a good day for us in any way, shape or form. It could’ve been a good day, because we should have been leaving here with three points – like we did last year. We leave with one point and I feel it’s two points dropped.”
