UEFA Officials Are Cowards, Robin Van Persie Says
The red card awarded to fellow team mate Nani during the last European Champions League match between Manchester United and Real Madrid has drawn the anger of Manchester United striker, Robin van Persie, as he called UEFA officials Cowards for allowing the referee Cuneyt Cakir’s red card to stand.
according to Van Persie, “That red card [Nani against Real Madrid] was heavily unjustified,” Van Persie told reporters. “It was not even a yellow card or a free kick. Nani couldn’t do anything about it, he hardly touched Arbeloa.
“The worst thing is that UEFA supports him. That’s cowardly, because I really don’t understand it.
“Why don’t they just be honest and say: ‘He hasn’t seen it?’
“I didn’t understand before the game that this man would be the referee, such an unknown referee who hasn’t been in charge of a big game for months.
“Even the guys from Madrid told me afterwards that it was not a red card.”
The Dutchman is also adamant that if they had ended the game with 11 men, they would been in the quarter-finals.
“For an hour everything was looking good, the tactics seems to be right,” van Persie said. “We really had the feeling that we were going to score the second goal and then it would become very difficult for Real Madrid. But then it the referee pulled the red card.
