Liverpool Lose Degen Appeal

FOOTBALL : Liverpool’s manpower crisis has got worse after they lost their appeal over full-back Philipp Degen’s red card in Saturday’s defeat at Fulham.

Liverpool’s manpower crisis has got worse after they lost their appeal over full-back Philipp Degen’s red card in Saturday’s defeat at Fulham.
Injury-hit Liverpool had both Swiss defender Degen, and stand-in skipper Jamie Carragher sent off in the second-half of the match at Craven Cottage which they lost 3-1. Liverpool appealed against both decisions and now await the FA’s deliberations over Carragher’s foul on Bobby Zamora that saw him red-carded.
“At a Regulatory Commission hearing, a claim for wrongful dismissal by Liverpool defender Philipp Degen was rejected,” read an FA statement.
“Degen was sent off for serious foul play during Liverpool’s Premier League match with Fulham on Saturday 31 October. Degen’s three-match suspension begins with immediate effect.”
Degen will now be unavailable for the Premier League games at home to Birmingham and Manchester City, plus the Merseyside derby clash at Everton on November 29.
With fellow full-back Glen Johnson’s calf injury forcing him out of Wednesday’s Champions League Group E clash in Lyon, Degen – who is not registered for Europe – could have found himself getting an extended run in boss Rafael Benitez’s first-team.
Liverpool felt that Degen’s foul on Clint Dempsey merited only a yellow card, but the FA do not agree.
If Johnson does recover in time for Monday’s game with Birmingham, Degen will probably find himself completing the ban in reserve football.
