Cahill should have seen red for dive, says Bruce

first_imgHull City manager Steve Bruce was left frustrated at some of the key decisions from referee Chris Foy at Stamford Bridge as his side fell to a 2-0 defeat.Eden Hazard and Diego Costa both found the back of the net for Jose Mourinho’s men who remain top of the Premier League as they defeated the Tigers, who played with ten men for the final half an hour.Tom Huddlestone saw red for the visitors but Bruce was left disappointed by Foy’s decision not to send off Gary Cahill for a perceived dive in the second half.“It is difficult enough to come to Chelsea and we might not even have been good enough to win against ten men anyway but I am convinced that if the referee had done his job properly today Gary Cahill would have received a yellow card for diving, he has tried to win a penalty,” Bruce said.Former Tottenham midfielder huddlestone saw red moments after the incident and the 53-year-old believes Foy’s leniency may have influenced the horrific challenge that led to his sending off.“The problem with Tom Huddlestone’s [red card] was the whole of my team were immensely frustrated by that decision, which has even got to Tom, who is one of the nicest guys in football. [The decision] has produced an awful tackle and I have no qualms that it is a red card.“It is the correct decision, but the trouble is he feels aggrieved, this is not Eden Hazard who flies down the wing at speed you can almost understand him going down, but this is England’s centre-half and he knows what he is doing because we’ve all done it and it should have been a second yellow and they should have had ten men with 30-40 minutes to go.”last_img
