Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock complained about poor officiating during his team’s 2-0 loss to Liverpool in their Premier League clash at the Cardiff City Stadium on Sunday evening.
The former Sheffield United and Crystal Palace boss talked about the poor officiating on the part of centre referee Martin Atkinson and his assistants in a chat with reporters during his post-match press conference.
Warnock talked about the decision to not award his team a penalty in the opening minutes of the second half before a soft penalty was given to Liverpool towards the end of the game.
Liverpool took a 56th-minute lead courtesy Dutch international midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum before substitute James Milner wrapped up the win from the spot after Mohamed Salah was fouled by Sean Morrison in the Cardiff City box.
Neil Warnock and his Cardiff City players have a lot of work to do after the defeat to Premier League title chasers Liverpool.
The Bluebirds trail the last safety spot, presently occupied by Brighton and Hove Albion, on the Premier League table by three points having played a game less than the Seagulls.
On their part, Liverpool have moved to the Premier League summit following the win a they are now two points clear of Manchester City having played a game more.
