Arsenal Vs Man U: “The Referee Apologised to Ferdinand for the Offside Goal”, Says Ferguson
The England forward opened scoring in the second minute of the game, in what appeared to be an offside position, but the goal was allowed to stand.
Speaking in the post-match press conference, Ferguson said: “We got caught on the backfoot in the first 20 mins. The referee found it difficult to determine what was a good and bad tackle.
“Podolski [committed] two yellow-card tackles while we were booked for our first tackle. It was unusual for us to get so many bookings – we have a good disciplinary record.
“Walcott was apparently was offside for his goal. The referee apologised to (United centre-back) Rio Ferdinand saying he got it wrong. It wasn’t his fault – it was the linesman’s. It was an uphill fight for us after losing the first goal.”
