The incident caused unnecessary chaos and left the team weakened in a crucial fixture.
According to reports, both Silva and Mitrovic have since regretted their actions and issued apologies to their team.”We’re all human and we make mistakes. But, as professionals, we have a responsibility to show respect to the game and conduct ourselves in a manner that does not compromise the team’s chances of success,” the Fulham boss said.
Silva further told Sky Sports, “It was a harsh red card for Mitro and mine was deserved. It was a big mistake, and I regret it now. It affected the team and we lost the game. It’s important we move on from this and learn from our mistakes.”
Looking ahead, it remains to be seen how Fulham will respond after their disappointing cup exit. However, the team’s honesty and willingness to take responsibility for their actions could help them regroup and come back stronger in future fixtures.
