Calvin Bassey was send off on his first start for Fulham FC in the Premier League this Saturday.
Bassey featured from the start during Fulham’s 2-2 away draw against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.
It was an eventful afternoon for the Super Eagles defender as he was having a great game before he was being given his marching orders in 83rd minute.
The 23-year-old received his first yellow card after Arsenal’s second goal, with Bassey claiming he was fouled near his ownbyeline by Saka.
The former Ajax defender was then shown a second yellow card for a foul on Eddie Nketiah.
After the game, Marco Silva defended the Nigerian international, saying the referee got the first booking wrong.
“This afternoon, if you see the first yellow for Calvin Bassey,it’s a joke!”
“They are taking all the emotion from the game, because it’s going to protect the big clubs! No one listens to us,” Silva told the media.
