Fred escapes red card for headbutt despite VAR check after ref runs to wrong side of pitch to check monitor – Bukipress

FRED somehow escaped a straight red card after an apparent headbutt on Leandro Paredes.

The Manchester United midfielder sparked a melee after Paris Saint-Germain’s Paredes embarrassingly collapsed to the ground holding his face.

Replays clearly showed the Brazilian moved his head into the direction of the opponent.

His PSG team-mates protested profusely for a straight red car as VAR reviewed the incident.

The referee then ran to the wrong side of the pitch to check the monitor before realising his error.

And it appeared certain that Fred would be given his marching orders when the referee ran onto the field with his hand in his pocket.

But to everyone’s surprise, Fred received just a yellow card.

It was an incident very similar to Arsenal’s Nicolas Pepe who saw red against Leeds on November 23.
