Liverpool blame the FA for their Carabao Cup investigation over fielding an ineligible player



Liverpool blame the FA over Carabao Cup problem surrounding Pedro Chirivella

Liverpool and the FA are in a bit of a row regarding our possible expulsion from the Carabao Cup for fielding an ineligible player, according to the Daily Mail.

The Reds handed several youngsters a chance to impress during the 2-0 win over MK Dons.

James Milner and Ki-Jana Hoever got the goals for Jurgen Klopp’s men but it seems that Pedro Chirivella was not given the necessary clearances to play.

Pedro Chirivella during pre-season

Liverpool are pinning the blame on the FA and claim that they applied for an international transfer certificate once the youngster returned to the Reds after a loan spell with Extremadura (h/t Daily Mail).

The club adds that they had asked the FA for his clearance in July, and are blaming them for “administrative oversight”, according to the report.

The FA claim that the clubs are responsible for the players’ eligibility and will help in the investigation (h/t Daily Mail).

A fine could be on the way

Liverpool could be handed a fine or a written warning too over their error (h/t Daily Mail).

It will be interesting to see what kind of punishment is meted out after the error. Liverpool were great in the win and it would be upsetting to see us expelled due to Chirivella’s appearance.

The Spaniard didn’t have a major impact after he came on in the second half, and hopefully, we can continue our journey in the Carabao Cup.
