Soccer Saturday’s Paul Merson was shocked to see Fulham’s Aleksandar Mitrovic stay on the pitch after this controversial incident appeared to be missed by the referee
Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic has been given a three-game suspension following an incident against Leeds on Saturday.
Mitrovic appeared to strike Leeds defender Ben White with his elbow during the opening stages of Fulham’s 3-0 defeat at Elland Road.
The incident wasn’t seen by referee Tony Harrington and so it has been looked at retrospectively.
