Theo Hernandez on Kessié red card: “I don’t think it’s a second yellow card.”

Speaking to BeIN Sports FR following AC Milan’s loss to Atletico Madrid in the Champions League, French international left-back Theo Hernandez questioned the officiating, believing that the decision to send off team-mate Franck Kessié was incorrect.

“That was the referee’s decision, me on the pitch I don’t think it is a second yellow card. But well, that was the referee’s decision, and that is how it happened.”

On Atletico Madrid’s injury time penalty:

I think both players touch the ball with the hand. I think that the referee has to go see VAR. If he doesn’t go see it, well it is difficult. As I said we are going to keep working. We did a good job, but anyway I think that the referee’s decision was not correct, but anyway we are going to keep working.
