Did Hirving Lozano Deserve His Sending Off Against Heerenveen?
Get the best email in soccer.
Hirving "Chucky" Lozano is having quite the first season in the Eredivisie. The 22-year-old Mexico international leads the Dutch league with 13 goals and is tied for seventh with seven assists. He also, curiously, is tied for first in red cards, with two. Also curiously, both of his red cards have come against the same club, Heerenveen. Maybe he doesn't like their uniforms.
Lozano's second red card of the season was given on Saturday in the 45th minute, but many viewers felt the red card was harsh and that Lozano should not have been sent off. In the interest of fairness, we are going to let you, the readers, decide for yourselves whether Lozano deserved his marching orders, without telling you how we feel beforehand.

So, what's the verdict? Should Lozano have been sent off?
(Personally, we can see how the referee gave it, but felt like if the universe was a just and fair place/space-time continuum Lozano would have been given a yellow. But it isn't, rendering our opinion worthless as usual.)
