Swansea manager Carlos Carvalhal has hinted the club might appeal Jordan Ayew’s red card in Saturday’s 0-0 draw at Huddersfield.
Ayew received a straight red card on 11 minutes for a challenge on Jonathan Hogg.
Referee Michael Oliver thought it was a reckless challenge from the Ghana international and had to send him off.
But Carvalhal claims the Swans may appeal.
”It was right in front of me,” Carvalhal told club website.
”I don’t usually talk about refereeing decisions, but I think this one was from the fourth official.
”To me, it was not a red card. I thought that at the time and I think the same after watching the video.
”Two players fought very hard for the ball and their feet were in exactly the same position. They were both fighting for the ball.
”If it’s a red card to one then it should be a red card to both of them. I think Jordan slipped a little on the pitch and their player did the same. They were like two bulls colliding.
”We will analyse it and see if we have reason to appeal. Let’s see.”
Jordan will miss Swansea’s FA Cup clash with Tottenham plus Premier League trips to Manchester United and West Brom if Swansea are unsuccessful in their appeal.
