Kevin Campbell Hit out at Craig Lawson and VAR for David Luiz red card decision after Arsenal’s defeat to Wolves

Kevin Campbell has come out to slam David Luiz Red Card Decision.

Kevin Campbell has taken aim at Craig Pawson and VAR for David Luiz’s sending

off in Arsenal’s dismal 2-1 defeat to Wolves on Tuesday. After going a goal up through Nicolas Pepe, Luiz was given his marching orders for a challenge on Willian Jose in the box, although the contact made on the Wolves striker was minimal and unintentional. The Brazilian defender was deemed not to have made an attempt to win the ball and thus referee Pawson showed him a straight red, which was a decision backed by the VAR official Jonathan Moss.

Luiz During a Training Session

There was minimal contact between Luiz and Willian Jose, Ruben Neves converted the resulting penalty on the stroke of half-time and Joao Moutinho scored a long-range stunner in the second half to put his side 2-1 up. The evening got worse for the Gunners as Bernd Leno was also sent off for inexplicably punching away the ball while clearly outside of his box, and Wolves held on to take all three points at Molineux. And former Arsenal striker Campbell fumed at the decision which completely altered the course of the game. ‘One decision can change everything and it did,’ Campbell told Football Insider. ‘It is madness. I tell you what, I agree on the penalty because there was contact. Give the penalty but you cannot send him off for that! ‘He has not made a play for the player or the ball. That is not a sending off! It is the slightest of touches.

Penalty incident

There is nothing he can do because it is the striker’s boot that catches him. That is not a sending off. ‘These referees, even with VAR, are not getting things right. It is so frustrating for everybody. ‘Everybody can see it with their own eyes but the VAR still gets it wrong. It is madness.’ Luiz currently faces a one-match ban which would see him miss Saturday’s clash against Aston Villa, but Arsenal will appeal the suspension.

Just In: New pictures of Arsenal’s 2021/22 away kit leaked

Published

The first pictures of Arsenal’s first team squad sporting next season’s away kit have been leaked.

After this season’s, bloodshot eyes shirt, the club are returning to a more traditional yellow and blue combination for 2021/22.

The shade of yellow – ‘pearl citrine’ in adidas parlance – may look a little like custard but the use of the stripped-back cannon badge is a nice touch.

We expect to see similar shots of the home and third kits in due course. The latter is predicted to be blue with a lightning motif inspired by the kits of the mid-nineties.
