Surprise! Ferguson and Pardew disagree on Hernandez ‘penalty’
PENALTY! DIVE! WHAT?!
It wasn’t the worst game you’ll ever see, but if Manchester United’s goalless draw with Newcastle United is to be remembered for anything (it won’t be) then it’ll be for the moment when Javier Hernandez fell on the floor after Danny Simpson carelessly stuck a leg out.
“It was a clear penalty. It’s an insult because he booked him. Chicharito is not the sort of player who throws himself to the ground.”
While Pardew said:
“Danny sticks a leg out which is dangerous, but he didn’t touch the guy and he definitely dived. He was looking for it.
“I have to praise the referee because he was brave there. Manchester United, pushing at the end, with last-minute goal history and who their manager is, it could have been easy to give it.”
But what do you think? Should Newcastle have had a penalty? Let us know with a well thought out comment…
