Adam Lallana sent off for manhandling Spurs player during U23 game

Adam Lallana sent off for manhandling Spurs player during U23 game

The incident appeared to begin in the 62nd minute when Lallana and 19-year-old George Marsh slammed into one another. He responded by racing after Marsh and grabbing him from behind, with images showing Lallana grappling him by the neck.

Lallana lost a header to Marsh, and the Liverpool midfielder felt the youngster had led with his arm.

Neil Critchley, the Under-23 coach, said of Lallana, who was about to be taken off: "I have never seen Adam react like that".

Lallana has recently returned to full first-team training following a groin injury but was not involved against Spurs at Anfield on Sunday.




It was pretty ridiculous from such an experienced player and, rather unsurprisingly, the ref showed him a straight red card.

Last night's experience as part of a back three was part of an education for him, and Gallacher will be finding everything completely new at Liverpool.

Lallana's dismissal was not the end of trouble for Liverpool that night as they went down to nine men later when George Johnston was sent off on 87 minutes.

While he missed Liverpool's Premier League clash against Tottenham due to his latest setback, he was fit enough to play for the club's Under-23's against the same opposition to prove his fitness.
