Luiz Felipe Got Red Card In The End Of The Match After "Embracing" Correa

Luiz Felipe was given a red card after Lazio's match against Inter for making fun of Joaquin Correa even though he admitted he was only joking with his best friend who is now defending the Nerazzuri.  Maurizio Sarri also commented on the incident.

Lazio defender, Luiz Felipe couldn't hold back his tears after being shown a red card after the final whistle in his team's 3-1 win over Inter due to what the referee thought was a provocation.

Tensions were already heating up at the Stadio Olimpico after the Biancoceleste took a 2-1 lead through Felipe Anderson who scored after Federico Dimarco fell through due to injury.  And it got hot again after the final whistle as the defender jumped on Joaquin Correa's shoulder from behind to celebrate the win.

They were very close friends and teammates at the Biancoceleste until a few months ago, however, Correa seemed unaware to who was behind him thus showing an angry reaction.

The referee saw it and issued a red card to the defender who immediately burst into tears and tried to explain that he meant just joking with a good friend.  If it continues, he will certainly miss the next match where Francesco Acerbi also has to serve a suspension for insulting the referee.

"He told me the referee sent him off but he only said hello to Correa, they are good friends and have played together for a long time, there was a very bad misunderstanding," Sarri told DAZN.

"Acerbi was suspended for two games for intimidating behavior without lifting a finger, so I'm not surprised this deserves a red card, Felipe Anderson was physically attacked after the goal, I expected a red card in the incident but there wasn't."
