O fază petrecută înainte de meci poate explica nefericitul incident.
Se știe că Bernardo e cel mai bun prieten al lui Florin in lotul lui Brighton. De înțeles că jucătorul român nu a început meciul în cea mai bună stare de spirit. Să revedem ce s-a întâmplat, pentru că știm că Andone este #notthatsortofplayer.
Iar Graham Potter a dat următoarea declarație după meci.
“It’s a straight red when you watch it back. It was on the other side of the pitch from me. At ground level you can’t see it totally but you always worry when there is a forward trying to go over the top of the ball to protect the ball but at the same time there is a defender’s leg there. We can’t defend that type of challenge. Florin didn’t mean to do it but still it’s not a good challenge. Apologies to Southampton. Luckily they didn’t get anybody injured. Florin knows it was a bad challenge. He has apologized, he didn’t mean to do it. At the same time, it was one of those actions which is not good and he is honest enough to know that.”
