Adomah sees red in Boro draw
Ghana winger Albert Adomah was sent off in Middlesbrough’s Championship game against Charlton Athletic on Saturday afternoon.
Adomah’s sending off came just three days after missing a decisive penalty in their Capital One Cup penalty shootout against Liverpool.
The 26-year old winger was booked on two occasions- after 75 and 82 minutes respectively.
However, Middlesbrough coach Aitor Karanka believes the referee erred in his decision to send off his winger.
“The referee was two or three meters away and gave the foul to us. Then five or six seconds later the linesman tells him it is the opposite way and is a red card.
“The referee is closer to the incident and I can’t understand this. The fourth official told me that the referee had made a mistake and changed his mind,” Karanka said in a post-match interview
“Everyone can make mistakes, I am the first one who can make mistakes, but when the referee is closer than the linesman and then changes his mind, this I can’t understand,” he added.
Adomah has failed to blossom so far after scoring just one goal in nine appearances.
