Andrew Robertson Tells Sadio Mane He'll Get Revenge For Yellow Card
Andrew Robertson hilariously showed he had his teammates back when he told Sadio Mane he'd get revenge for the yellow card the forward had just been given.
Mane was given a harsh booking at the end of the first half of Liverpool's FIFA World Club Cup final against Flamengo on Saturday afternoon.
The half-time whistle went moments later and as the players walked off Robertson made sure Mane knew that the Scotsman would deal with the consequences.
Robbo saying to Mané at half time "Sadio, I'll get him don't worry" after Rafinha got him booked :sob::sob:- Josh (@KloppStyle) December 21, 2019
Mane had been in a struggle with Rafina and had got ahead of the Brazilian who tugged his shirt and the Senegal forward tried to push off the opposition player.
Really the Reds' player should have been given the free kick but instead he was booked and clearly Robertson took exception to the incorrect decision by the refere.
Whilst the decision to put Mane in the book was one of the most blatant errors from the officials it certainly wasn't the only one with fans taking to social media to share their disapproval:

The referee at the Liverpool game is a disgrace. For both teams.- Max Toddy (@itsyaboymaxxi) December 21, 2019
Flamengo is doing great! Liverpool started well, and then let Flamengo take over. The Referee is terrible and, so far, has helped Flamengo at least in two different occasions. #FlamengoxLiverpool #Liverpool #Flamengo- Renato Saeger M Costa (@renatosmcosta) December 21, 2019
Liverpool need to improve in the 2nd half, but not as much as the referee does. My word, he's been poor. #FIFAClubWorldCup- Darren Jalla-la-la-la-la-la-la-land (@CountingSheep5) December 21, 2019
At least fans have the excitement of seeing what Robertson does to look forward to, as if Liverpool fans couldn't love the left-back anymore.
