Bosnich says Ronaldo red card was “one of the worst decisions he has seen”

Australia Football Legend Mark Bosnich says Cristiano Ronaldo’s red card in the Champions League overnight was one of the “worst decisions” he has seen in a very long time.

Ronaldo received a straight red card in the 29th minute of his Champions League debut for Juventus after an altercation against Valencia’s Jeison Murillo.

He risks missing the next two matches, including a game against his old team Manchester United.

Bosnich says the decision needs to be reviewed.

“Hopefully they will rescind that decision so he doesn’t get suspended,” Bosnich told Halftime with James Willis.  

Although admitting a great thing about football is “very little changes,” Bosnich says it is time for the Video Assistant Referee to be implemented.

“It just underlines how important it is for the Champions League and the Premier League to go with VAR. It was really well installed in the World Cup.

“The stakes are too high, okay it didn’t cost Juventus this time but in the future it will cost them. Imagine if this was a final and he was sent off and Juventus would lose.”

In other results, Lyon upset Premier League Champions Manchester City at the Etihad 2-1.

“Amazing, absolutely amazing, that was a fantastic game.

“It also showed a lot of teams in the Premier League what you need to do if you want to beat Manchester City.”
