A Manchester United Fan Tweets About Liverpools Reaction To Fouls, Instantly Goes Viral

A Manchester United fan has posted a Tweet comparing Liverpool supporter’s reaction to fouls, and it makes for interesting reading.

Last night, Liverpool secured a spot in the Champions League knockout draw after beating Napoli 1-0 at Anfield, but it wasn’t without controversy.

In the eyes of many, Virgil van Dijk was lucky to avoid a straight red card for his reckless foul on Dries Mertens.

The match referee brandished a yellow card with social media erupting.

Liverpool fans, of course, defended their Dutch defender with comments flooding in.

One Liverpool supporter reacted immediately to the incident, saying: “Football has gone soft.”

However, the same fan was also disgusted about Sergio Ramos’ challenge on Mohamed Salah.

“I’m actually shocked Ramos didn’t break Salah’s arm. Absolute disgrace,” he posted.

Fair tackle? Or should he have received a red card?
