Fergie Fury At Penalty Decision


Man United manager Sir Alex Ferguson was understandably furious last night after Man United were not awarded a stonewall penalty. This was the second time in a matter of two Champions League games that United weren’t awarded blatant penalties.

The first time, Darren Fletcher was taken out in the penalty area and last night Patrice Evra was blocked off. Last night’s game finished 1-0 to Besiktas and United’s 23-match unbeaten home record in Europe was put to an end.

Sir Alex said: "I was right to be agitated. If you can't give penalty kicks like this and the one against CSKA, then the game is in trouble." 

"That's two games in a row we've been denied a stonewall penalty in Europe.
"It's not in the spirit of the game but what can you do? You just have to get on with it."

"It was tough on us. We didn't get the breaks. In the second half they went very defensive, stopped the game, played out time with players lying down.
"It's very difficult for young players to understand that."
