Chelsea football manager angered by penalty snub

7th April 2011 - Alma Shera

Chelsea football manager Carlo Ancelotti was fuming after his side were denied a penalty in the final minute of their Champions League game against Manchester United last night (April 6th).

Blues midfielder Ramires appeared to be hacked down by Patrice Evra in stoppage time, but Spanish referee Alberto Undiano Mallenco waved play on.

Football manager Ancelotti was incensed by the decision not to award a spot-kick, claiming that the foul was "clear".

"Everyone knows it was clear. I'm disappointed but this is the result. Not just the referee, but the assistant was in the right position to decide that was a penalty," he said.

Manchester United football manager Sir Alex Ferguson took a different viewpoint, saying that the call was 50-50.

He also suggested that United deserved a bit of luck with the decision, after Chelsea were given a controversial penalty in the Premier League game between the two sides last month.
