It was red card – Lampard gives verdict on Van Dijk’s challenge on Onana

Everton manager, Frank Lampard, has given his verdict on Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk’s dangerous tackle on Amadou Onana following both sides’ Premier League 0-0 draw on Saturday.




Lampard insisted that Van Dijk should have been shown a red card for his tackle on Onana in the goalless Premier League derby on Saturday afternoon.

Van Dijk caught Onana with a late, high challenge in the second half of Everton’s clash with Liverpool, but after referee Anthony Taylor booked the Liverpool defender, VAR decided not to recommend the official look at a replay.

Speaking on the incident, Lampard said at his post-match press conference: “I love Virgil van Dijk, as a player, he is fantastic, but sometimes you mistime tackles, and they are bad.
