Alexis Mac Allister: Liverpool midfielder’s red card against Bournemouth is overturned

22 August 2023 0 By Total Football News

Liverpool’s Alexis Mac Allister’s red card in Saturday’s 3-1 win over Bournemouth has been overturned following a successful appeal.

The Argentina midfielder, 24, was sent off and suspended for three matches after he clipped Ryan Christie’s foot in the 58th minute at Anfield.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said the decision was “harsh”.

The Reds appealed and the Football Association’s Independent Regulatory Commission removed the suspension.

“An independent regulatory commission has removed Alexis Mac Allister’s three-match suspension following a claim of wrongful dismissal,” the FA said.

Match of the Day host Gary Lineker had described the sending off decision as “nonsense” on social media.
