The Everton goalkeeper, who shot Van Dijk for a severe injury, will not be punished. Former Liverpool player and coach Graeme Souness is outraged.


Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford will not be punished for causing a severe injury to Liverpool defender Virgil Van Dijk.

The Football Association of England (FA) only imposes penalties when the offence is penalized with a red card. At the same time, in the Merseyside derby the referee and the VAR neglected the moment because Van Dyke was out of the game.

In the 5th round of the English Premier League, which ended in a draw 2: 2, the Dutch defender of Liverpool, after a dangerous fall from Pickford, cut the cross and is waiting for an operation, which means that the season is practically over for him.

However, Jordan Pickford has been criticized by many for his rudeness, including former Liverpool player and coach Graeme Souness:

“This is outrageous. People in London who make decisions with VAR are watching this moment and thinking about offside. I just do not understand. What Pickford did is not a drop; it is an attack on a person!”

After 5 games in the English Premier League, Everton has 13 points and leads the tournament table, while Liverpool is in third place with 10 points. Virgil Van Dijk, 29, has played in all five of the league’s games and scored one goal.
