Glen Johnson’s Tackle Was Worse Than Vincent Kompany’s: Animated GIF

Glen Johnson committed a two-footed lunge against Manchester City in Wednesday night’s first leg of the Carling Cup semi-final. However, the tackle (see above animation), which was far worse than the one that Vincent Kompany committed against Nani this past Sunday, was unpunished by referee Lee Mason.

The tackle by Liverpool’s Glen Johnson is sure to generate a lot of heated debate about the inconsistency shown by referees. How can Kompany be red carded, while Johnson goes unpunished?

The second leg at Anfield takes place on Wednesday, January 25.

H/T 101 Great Goals.
