Nathan Collins horror tackle on Jack Grealish compared to Erling Haaland’s karate kick winner against Borussia Dortmund as Wolves defender gets straight red – ‘It’s a ridiculous challenge’

    Nathan Collins might have already won the Premier League award for the most blatant red card of the season with a kung-fu kick on Jack Grealish.

    It was so bad, in fact, that it was compared to Erling Haaland’s acrobatic matchwinner against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League.

    The Irishman made a 33rd-minute exit from Molineux when he flew studs-first into Grealish’s abs, leaving the forward with a nasty red mark.

    And referee Anthony Taylor needed to time at all to pry open his back pocket, with any hopeful thoughts of a VAR check for the home crowd comprehensively wiped out by replays.

    talkSPORT commentator Sam Matterface drew an interesting comparison for the high boot, likening it to Haaland’s karate-kick goal last time out.

    “If you imagine the athleticism Haaland used the other night, Collins has done that but not so well,” he quipped.

    Ex-Premier league midfielder Andy Townsend added: “It’s a ridiculous challenge.”
