This is what Sir Alex Ferguson said after Chelsea’s 1-0 win over Man United
Sir Alex Ferguson was clearly not impressed by the officials after Manchester United's 1-0 loss to Chelsea
Sir Alex Ferguson was clearly not at all happy about the referee in the wake of Manchester United’s 1-0 loss to Chelsea in the FA Cup on Monday night.
Michael Oliver showed Ander Herrera two yellow cards in the first half as the Red Devils were reduced to 10 men at Stamford Bridge.
N’Golo Kante then ended up scoring the only goal of the game in the second half at Stamford Bridge as Antonio Conte’s men booked their place in the last four of the cup competition.
There was plenty of debate after the game as to whether Herrera should have been sent off in the first half in west London.
And former Manchester United manager Ferguson was clearly unimpressed by the performance of referee Oliver.
Speaking to BBC Sport at the Cheltenham Festival on Tuesday, Ferguson said: “I wish I could swear about the referee but I won’t!”
