Everton boss displeased with Zouma red card
Everton manager Marco Silva has lamented at the sending off of Kurt Zouma after the eighth defeat in 11 Premier League matches at his former club Watford.
Zouma was given a red card in the dying minutes of the game with the Toffees a goal down from Andre Gray’s 65th-minute goal with Lucas Digne hit the top of the crossbar from a free-kick and substitute Dominic Calvert-Lewin missing an open chase.
“I will try and speak with the referee now, if he stays here, because I spoke with Kurt at the end of the match,” Silva told a post-match news conference after the 1-0 loss.
“He told me he received a yellow card and then the referee gave the second yellow card to him.
“It is the moment for our players to be calm but sometimes that is not easy and the referee has to understand because many, many mistakes are coming against our team.
“It is not easy sometimes to understand everything and they cannot understand the referee and his assistant.
“It is not a case for Kurt to do something at the end of the match because the game is finished.
“At the award of the corner, all of our players go to speak with the referee, and after the goal they go to speak with the referee because it wasn’t a corner.”
