Leeds United manager Neil Warnock had no complaints about the red card shown to Michael Brown in the defeat to Derby County.
Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Warnock said, “I have no complaints about the sending-off. He puts six studs up into his stomach and I can have no complaints really.
When you have seen Balotelli (Manchester City) over the weekend then the referee is going to send him off.”
Brown`s sending off came just four days after fellow midfielder Zac Thompson was shown a straight red card in the twelfth minute in the defeat at Reading.
Brown was shown a straight red card in the 25th minute for a high tackle on Derby striker Theo Robinson and Warnock felt it was another stupid sending-off, the third in three games for Leeds. “It makes it difficult because so many players are being stupidly sent-off and it makes it hard work,”Added Warnock.
The latest sending off for Leeds is their eighth of the season and they have also received over 70 yellow cards.
As well as the eight suspensions Leeds will have received through red cards this season, they have also had Darren O`Dea (twice) and Adam Clayton serve suspensions for collecting yellow cards over the season.
