PREMIER - Pascal Struijk red card appealed by Leeds
Leeds United have appealed Pascal Struijk's red card in the 1-0 loss to Liverpool.
After VAR intervention, referee Craig Pawson sent Struijk out, with Harvey Elliott suffering a dislocated ankle.
If the red card is upheld, he risks a three-match suspension, but if the Yorkshire club is successful, he will be eligible for Friday's trip to Newcastle.
The Belgian rushed to social media to apologise to the teenager, who also backed the centre back.
On Instagram, Struijk wrote:
"In today's game, something happened that I would never wish on anyone.
"Harvey Elliott, my thoughts are with you. I'm gutted and never meant for this to happen. I wish you a speedy recovery and hope to see you back on the pitch soon."
Elliott also stated in a post: "Wasn't his fault whatsoever!
"Neither was it a red card just a freak accident but these things happen in football. I'll be back stronger 100%. Thanks for all the support."
