Despite the fact that the MLS has made a great effort in recent years to incorporate important figures in order to increase the level of football, It is still considered by many to be in a lower league and one that no one takes seriously. and that argument was reaffirmed after the blooper that Giorgio Chiellini sent himself, by committing a blatant hand foulin the best volleyball style.
Despite the fact that LAFC prevailed against Real Salt Lake with a great goal from Gareth Bale and a good participation from Carlos Vela, What has gone viral on social networks is the clamorous hand, without any kind of self-confidence, of the Italian central defender midfield height.
A popular Twitter account called Troll Football Media, which uploads atypical content, and in some surreal moments of football, published the video of the controversial hand of the former Juventus footballer with a message that says “Chiellini mocks the MLS”.
In the video there are a lot of negative comments that criticize, not only Chiellini’s action, but of many foreigners who come to the MLS with the belief that it is a lower league so that soccer players will retire in peace.
“Those kind of finished players are good for MLS”, “What league is MLS and what is Chiellini doing there?” and “No one takes MLS seriously,” They were some mocking comments towards the MLS.
What is really striking, and what would be the most notorious error, is the sanction that the referee decided to apply, since Despite the brazen and intentional hand committed by the Italian central defender, the main player only showed him the yellow card instead of expelling him.
