Kerr received yellow card in Women’s Champions League

As the Women’s Champions League group stage game ended, a man ran onto the field holding a mobile phone, stopping the game while trying to take a selfie with Chelsea captain Magdalena Eriksson. She appeared on cue near the post, and took it behind the goalkeeper. When the Australian captain Samantha Kerr ran towards him, dropped his shoulder and hit him, he erupted with joy. The man was taken off the field by the stewards, while the referee flashed a yellow card to Kerr for her actions.

When asked why Kerr received the yellow card and the card could be challenged, a UEFA spokesman said: “The player has been penalized for non-playing behavior and no appeal has been received at this stage.”  After the game, Chelsea coach Emma Hayes admitted that more needed to be done to protect the players.

As ESPN reports, Hayes said, “If he really wanted a picture he could have waited until the end. But apart from the joke, we need to think about the safety of the player. I saw in the development of the game there is a sense that the demand for players is high. This should serve as a reminder to all of us in our stadiums, and along with our stewards, we need to put the players’ safety first.”

Chelsea missed a chance to qualify in the knockout stages as they failed to score for the first time this season. Chelsea, who effectively beat Arsenal to win the FA Cup at Wembley on Sunday, remain at the top of Group A and three points behind second-placed Wolfsburg.
