Swansea City manager Carlos Carvahal has hinted that the club may appeal the red card given to Ghanaian striker Jordan Ayew on Saturday.

The younger of the Swans’ Ayew brothers was shown a straight red in the 11th minute of their goalless draw with Huddersfield Town, following a studs-up challenge on Jonathan Hogg.

“I saw a situation that was to me not a red card,” Carvalhal said after the match. “Now I’ve seen the video, it’s more easy to talk.

“Two players challenged very hard for the ball, exactly in the same position with the feet, twop layers, exactly the same.

“What my player did and the Huddersfield player did was exactly the same. You will see on the image. Both exactly the same position.

“If it’s a red card, a red card to both players or not a red card to any player. That’s my view from the video.

“I must respect the decision. We will analyse with some experts to help us if we have reasons or not to appeal, but let’s see, I don’t know.”
