Bournemouth Defender Steve Cook Sent Off For Save Of The Season – SPORTbible
Bournemouth’s Steve Cook produced the save of the season so far in the Premier League, though unfortunately he was shown a red card for doing so.
In the first half at Carrow Road,Aaron Ramsdale rushed out to thwart Norwich striker Teemu Pukki when he was played in behind and as Ondrej Duda curled one goalwards on the rebound, Cook made the crazy decision to completely handle the ball.
The Cherries No.3 was sat in the six yard box when the shot was taken and with no disguise whatsoever, jumped up to tip the ball over the penalty in the most obvious fashion.
He was correctly given a red card by the referee before VAR provided confirmation to the easiest decision of all-time, while Pukki would then step up to open the scoring from the spot.
To be fair it was a cracking, full-stretch save that the likes of David De Gea, Ederson and Alisson Becker would have been proud of, so maybe Cook should consider a position change at the ripe old age of 28.
