Manchester United manager David Moyes has hit out at referee Howard Webb after his teams 2-1 home defeat to Tottenham Hotspurs on Wednesday afternoon.
Speaking after his team were not awarded a penalty after Spurs keeper Hugo Lloris appeared to foul Ashley Young, Moyes fumed “It’s an incredible decision, in fact probably one of the worst I think I saw,”
“The goalkeeper comes out, Ashley Young gets the ball before him and he follows through,”
“If you follow through on a player anywhere else on the pitch with your foot high, it would be a sending-off and a red card.
“I find it incredible, but the people who employ the referees are going to have to look at that and see if they get that right.”
Moyes’ comments show that he is starting to feel the pressure after yet another home defeat for the defending Champions. They now find themselves eleven points off the top of the Barclays Premier League and five points off the final Champions League position, currently held by Liverpool.
Moyes was equally out spoken about Adnan Januzaj being booked yet again for simulation, “It certainly isn’t a dive,” said the Scot, who felt Spurs defender Danny Rose had touched the youngster. “It’s the wrong decision.”
After such an outburst Moyes can also expect a call from the FA asking him to explain his comments over both incidents.
Overall it was a disappointing and frustrating day for the Manchester United manager as his team suffered their sixth defeat of the season so far.
