Sir Alex Ferguson ‘Lambasted’ me over Red Card – Solskjaer

  Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has recalled when Sir Alex Ferguson, “absolutely lambasted,” him, after he got sent off during a game against Newcastle back in 1998. United were fighting for the Premier League title with eventual champions Arsenal and every point mattered as the campaign neared its conclusion. Newcastle had come to Old Trafford and were on course for a draw, while United threw bodies forward in search of a goal. It was then, in the 89th minute, that the visitors broke away with Rob Lee charging down on Raymond van de Gouw’s goal with a clear chance to win the game, until Solskjaer’s timely intervention to scythe down his opponent and ensure his team avoided defeat.

Real Madrid 2-1 Barcelona: Zinedine Zidane’s men go top of the table

Real Madrid are now top of the La Liga table after doing the double over Barcelona for the first time since 2007-08 by winning 2-1 on Saturday night, April 10. It was a very entertaining game as Madrid’s counter-attacking tactics worked well, particularly in the first half as Karim Benzema put Madrid 1-0 ahead. 33-year-old Benzema was first to meet Lucas Vazquez's low cross towards the near post, squeezing a backheeled flick past Marc-Andre ter Stegen for his 25th goal in 35 appearances this season. Barcelona fell further behind when Kroos' free-kick took a deflection off Sergino Dest on its way past Ter Stegen. Federico Valverde could have made it 3-0 before half-time, but his shot across goal came back off the inside of the far post. In the second half Coach Ro...

The result saw the Gunners slip to a third straight loss and miss the chance to climb back into the Premier League’s top four. Jamie Vardy continued his hot streak against the Gunners with his late brace making it eight goals in his last nine games against them. Youri Tielemans opened the scoring after Maitland-Niles’ first-half dismissal. “We worked, we prepared our game plan, 11 v 11 the match was going like we prepared. “For me, the first yellow card for Maitland-Niles is not for me, it has affected our game plan a lot. One player less is difficult. “Today the condition [for losing] is...

Diego Costa handed eight match ban for insulting referee’s mother

Spanish striker, Diego Costa has been given an eight-game ban for his controversial rant at referee Jesus Gil Manzano during Atletico Madrid's 2-0 defeat by Barcelona last Saturday. The 30-year-old was shown a straight red card in the 28th minutes after he repeatedly said to the referee "Me cago en tu puta madre," which literally translates to "I shit on your whore mother." The referee's report also accuses Costa of holding the referee's arm so as to prevent him taking out more cards for his team-mates.  Gil's report read: 'Once sent-off, still on the pitch, he grabbed my arm to prevent me from showing yellow cards to his team-mates No 24 [Jose Gimenez] and No 2 [Diego Godin].'      The Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) ban consists of four games for being f...

Capoue Didn’t Foul Iheanacho, Success Protests Red Card

Watford and Super Eagles striker, Isaac Success has claimed that his teammate Etienne Capoue’s red card against Leicester City in Saturday’s Premier League game was unjustified. Success submitted that after speaking with Kelechi Iheanacho, he was convinced that referee Graham Scot was wrong in sending off Capoue in stoppage time. “I spoke to Iheanacho and he said there was no contact by Capoue,” Success told club website. “I feel sorry for him because he has been one of our best players. Let’s see what the FA will do because it was never a red card.” Prior to the incident, Capoue had scored two goals across all competitions this season and has been a consistent fixture for Watford featuring in all but one of their Premier League games.

Cristiano Ronaldo Receives Red Card On UCL Debut With Juventus (Photo)

Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo was sent off after a seemingly innocuous coming-together with Valencia center-back Jeison Murillo in the first half of their opening Champions League clash Wednesday. Ronaldo signed for Juventus from Real Madrid in July for £105million, with the Serie A giants hopeful he can propel them to Champions League glory. He broke his duck for his new side against Sassuolo at the weekend and was given the nod against Valencia this evening, expected to hit the goal trail once again. However, Cristiano Ronaldo has now been dismissed on his Juventus Champions League debut following a clash with Jeison Murillo in the area. The 33-year-old received his marching orders following a collision in the box and immediately broke into tears, throwing a full-on ...

Sadio Mane Red Card Decision Was Wrong, Say Gary Neville

The Reds star was shown a straight red card by referee Jon Moss after he caught City goalkeeper Ederson with a high boot just outside the penalty area. Mane had appeared to be trying to win the ball but the impact left Ederson seriously injured and he was taken off on a stretcher. Sky Sports pundits Gary Neville and Thierry Henry think Moss was wrong to send Mane off. Neville said: 'It's one of those I don't think he needed to give a red card, it wasn't expected and I think he's got it wrong. 'How many times this season do you see a foot high, when a player goes with their head and the player gets there first and the foot goes into the chest. You very rarely see a red card for it, you might get a yellow.' Henry added: 'I think I would have gone for it, it's an unfortunate 50...

Guardiola Baffled By Sterling Red Card

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola questioned why Raheem Sterling had been sent off after scoring a 97th-minute winner to earn his side a 2-1 victory at Bournemouth on Saturday. Sterling scored with a deflected shot deep into stoppage time at the Vitality Stadium and celebrated by running into the away section, for which referee Mike Dean showed him a second yellow card. “I do not understand the decision,” Guardiola said. “If you cannot celebrate with the fans, tell me the reason why. Maybe we should not play with fans.” Having seen his side drop points in a 1-1 draw at home to Everton on Monday, Guardiola’s relief was evident as he celebrated Sterling’s winner with his coaching staff. “Winning in the last minute is always special,” said Guardiola, whose team won 2-0 at B...

Madrid To Appeal Ronaldo Red Card – Zidane

Coach Zinedine Zidane said Real Madrid will appeal Cristiano Ronaldo’s second yellow card for diving in the Spanish Super Cup first leg at Barcelona. The Portuguese star player had showed the best and worst side of his game in Real’s 3-1 win at Nou Camp. Ronaldo spent 24 minutes on the pitch after not starting the game and still had the biggest impact. The 32-year-old, who was given a hostile reception by Barca fans as he warmed up before replacing Karim Benzema, hit back moments after Lionel Messi’s equaliser with a brilliant strike into the top corner to put Real 2-1 up in the 80th minute. The Portuguese threw off his shirt after scoring and provocatively held it up to the crowd and was booked. Two minutes later he was sent off for trying to win a penalty in a challenge fr...

Pedro Red Card Correct Decision By Referee Madley – Ex-Ref

Retired referee Graham Poll has thrown his weight behind referee Bobby Madley’s decision to send off Chelsea’s Pedro for his rash tackle on Arsenal’s Mohammed Elneny in Sunday’s Community Shield game at the Wembley Stadium which the Gunners won 4-1 on penalties after regulation period ended 1-1. The moment of controversy came in the 80th minute when Pedro was sent off with 10 minutes remaining for studs up tackle which caught Elneny on the ankle. This was at a time the Blues looked to be cruising to a victory. Poll asserted it was the right decision even though Arsenal seized advantage to equalize and then went on to win the game. He said: “The Community Shield is always seen by referees as a chance to set the scene for the season. For me the red card for Pedro was a strong but ju...

Video Referee Used For The First Time In An England Game As Varane Sees Red For Foul On Alli

Technology played a role in England's friendly on Tuesday night when the referee, with the help of his video assistant, opted to send off France star Raphael Varane. The Three Lions were trailing 2-1 in the early stages of the second half when Dele Alli was brought down from behind by Real Madrid defender Varane. Italian official Davide Massa immediately pointed to the spot to award a penalty kick to the visitors before consulting his video assistant for assurance. After a short stoppage in play, Massa then gave Varane his marching orders — with the assistant seemingly deciding the challenge was worthy of a straight red. With Varane making his way back to the Stade de France changing rooms for an early shower, Harry Kane stepped up to level the scores in Paris. The Tottenham...
