Ian Holloway slams referee Chris Kavanagh

first_imgFormer Queens Park Rangers Ian Holloway has slammed referee Chris Kavanagh who sent off Nuno-Espirito-Santo for Jurgen Klopp-style celebration.Nuno, who is the manager of Wolverhampton Wanderers was dismissed for going onto the pitch to celebrate his team’s late winner, in their 4-3 victory over Leicester City.Holloway believes Nuno was hard-done by Kavanagh who failed to send off Jurgen Klopp for the same actions during the Merseyside derby earlier in the season.Speaking to talkSPORT’s Jim White, Holloway said: “You could see he [Nuno] was itching, he was slapping the hands of his staff and he thought ‘I’m going [to celebrate with the players]’.”“Instead of running on the pitch he ran up the side and then he ran behind the goal and he wanted to say to the lad [Jota] who’s had some injury problems ‘well done’.”Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, LiverpoolMo Salah laughs off Sadio Mane incident with a brilliant video Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Mohamed Salah laughed off his little spat with Liverpool team-mate Sadio Mane by posting a brilliant video showing they’ve made up.“But when he gets back, off you go! Now I know rules are rules but I know what happens as a referee.”“The same ref didn’t send off Klopp for doing it against Everton. He didn’t send him off.”“I wish he didn’t send off Nuno because where does it stop? He [Kavanagh] obviously got a ticking off from his bosses and he’s now sent him off.”“I thought it was silly, it was stupid. With the passion, with the pressure managers are under, you should be allowed to celebrate to a point.”last_img
