Home All The News Rio slams ‘disgraceful’ Man Utd decision against ‘small West Brom’

Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has criticised referee David Coote’s decision to overturn his decision to give West Brom a penalty at Old Trafford.

West Brom thought they would have an opportunity to take the lead when Conor Gallagher was brought down by Bruno Fernandes and Coote pointed to the spot.

But the referee was advisded by VAR to consult the pitchside monitor and decided to reverse his decision.

United went on to win all three points after Fernandes converted a penalty that was retaken after Sam Johnstone came off his line on the first attempt.

“I’m very disappointed with the decision,” Bilic told BT Sport. “I felt like ‘small West Brom’.

“All those crucial decisions went against us. I’ve watched it a few times and it’s a clear penalty.

Ferdinand also claims Solskjaer was “controlling the narrative” by voicing his anger at the Premier League.

The future of Slaven Bilic is under scrutiny as West Brom bosses begin to look at alternative managers.

Solskjaer’s men had been using European fixtures as a welcome distraction from domestic troubles.

Chelsea spent over £200million on some of Europe’s top talent in the summer; Ferdinand names the best.

Ferdinand claims Diogo Jota has put Firmino “under huge pressure” to remind Klopp of his worth to Liverpool.

The Ghanaian was signed on deadline day, moving to the Emirates from Atletico Madrid.

Didier Drogba was a phenomenal big man up top. But only a fool wouldn’t look beyond his football skill.

Bruno Fernandes remains the single redeeming feature of this Man Utd squad. Imagine how dour they might be without him…

Jose was supposedly finished after Man Utd refused to follow his lead but these malleable Spurs could make him special once more…

Chelsea are now title contenders and so they should be after their summer of spending…

Man City are the big climbers from last season while United go the other way. What else is there?
