Week In Pictures – The double standards of Manchester United
Sir Alex Ferguson was left distraught by Nani’s controversial sending off against Real Madrid on Tuesday evening that changed the game and saw the Spanish side progress into the last eight of the competition.
The decision to dismiss the Portuguese international was condemned by almost all (except Roy Keane!) and Ferguson was too furious to speak to the press after the match, saving himself from UEFA rammifications.
However footage of a similar incident involving Arsenal’s Emmanuel Eboue being sent off against United from 2008 is circulating in the Football Transfer Tavern. The former Gunners man was shown a straight red card for a high tackle on Patrice Evra which does appear to be almost identical to the one that saw Nani receiving an early bath.
Ferguson even said after the game that he believes it was a definite red card. He may have a different option on the Nani incident once he finally speaks about it.
Have a look at the hilarious picture below.
