Fans all saying the same thing as Kipre PUNCHES ball away in Cardiff clash with Swansea… but ref doesn't give penalty | The Sun

CHAMPIONSHIP fans could not believe that the referee did not see a clear handball by Cardiff ace Cedric Kipre.

In the South Wales derby played between Cardiff and Swansea there was controversy 35 minutes in.



Swansea crossed the ball and Kipre, 25, cleared it out the box but he seemed to punch it away rather than head it.

The Swansea players surrounded referee Darren Moore who didn't spot the handball.

The match ended 2-0 to the Swans and after the game the incident was the big talking point.

Fans were left in shock especially after seeing replays, one said: "Contender for most blatant handball ever missed by a referee."
