Sir Alex Ferguson was critical of assistant referee Simon Beck after he felt that Manchester United deserved a penalty during the 1-1 draw with Spurs.
Steven Caulker and Wayne Rooney came together in the Spurs box and Rooney went down to the floor which Fergie felt was a penalty.
Taking United’s rose-tinted spectacles off, we deserved our draw courtesy of Clint Dempsey’s injury time equaliser. If you read AVB’s quotes he felt we deserved to win the game, United only had four attempts on target all game compared to our eighteen.
Fergie told Sky Sports: “It was a clear penalty,” he said. “It was definitely a penalty. He has put his leg right in there.
“The linesman is facing it, I thought he had a very poor game, the linesman. I thought he was disappointing.
“We have got that history with him. He never gave offside with (Chelsea striker Didier) Drogba at Old Trafford when he was three yards offside. Everyone remembers that, I certainly do.”
“For me it was a poor performance from him, why he never gave a penalty I don’t know,” Ferguson added. “I think he had a shocking game today, he’s had a bad game and we never got anything from that side of the pitch.”
