Alex Ferguson Furious At Decision Not To Send Off Luiz

Wayne Rooney and David Luiz

The Red Devils took the lead in the first half with a goal by Wayne Rooney. A goals from David Luiz and a Frank Lampard penalty handed the Blues victory. Nemanja Vidic was sent off late on for picking up his second booking for a foul on Ramires.

Ferguson was furious that Luiz was not given a red after appearing to foul Rooney having already been booked.

“We played very well, it was a great performance by us - we didn’t deserve that. That’s three years in a row here that referees have made decisions that have changed the game.

“It was incredible [Luiz not being sent off for a foul on Rooney], even before that he had done Chicharito off the ball, he did him late, nothing done, referee is in front of it. He did Rooney, clear as day, six yards from it, referee doesn’t do anything. It changes the game. You ask me what changes the game. These are decisions that change the game and he’s going to be refereeing every week.”

“I’m proud of my players, they’ve endured a lot of decisions against them lately,” he added.

“They’ve carried themselves through it, done their best, created chances. They didn’t deserve that.”

“Decisions like tonight can change everything,” he added.

“They got a lot of decisions tonight that surprised me, in a major game like that. There’s no doubt about that.
