U.E.F.A TO TAKE ACTION AGAINST MANCHESTER UNITED.
The U.E.F.A has decided to take action against Manchester United, after they lost in the second leg match to Real Madrid, at OLD TR AFFORD. In this match the Turkish referee showed a straight red card to Luis Nani in the 56th minute for a very high leg on Alvaro Arbelo and all the studs were showing.The rules clearly say it is a bookable offense . But in the 2010 world cup final between Holland and Spain, the Dutch midfielder Nigel De Jong also did the same thing with his studs all of which were on Xavi Alonso's chest. Here the referee Howard Webb did not send him off , but admitted after the final whistle he should have shown a straight red card. The reason for U.E.F.A action is Sir Alex Ferguson failed to come and speak to the press after the match as he should in fact he let the assistant manager do it. The ban may be for more as Rio Ferdinand clapped sarcastically at the referee after the final whistle. And speaking to the ;press is compulsory under U.E.F.A rules.
