Manchester United football manager angered over penalty decision

3rd May 2011 - Sigvard Magnus

Sir Alex Ferguson feels his team were victims of poor refereeing decisions against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.

The Manchester United football manager saw his side lose 1-0 to the Gunners thanks to a goal from Aaron Ramsey, with United denied a claim for a penalty in the final minutes when Gael Clichy appeared to foul Michael Owen.

After the loss, Manchester United are now just three points ahead of Chelsea with the two clubs set to meet next week.

"It's too big a game not to get the decisions right," Ferguson told Sky Sports News.

"Obviously, it gives Chelsea a major chance now and that's what happens when you get these decisions."

However, Arsenal football manager Arsene Wenger pointed out that the officials missed a blatant handball by United centre-back Nemanja Vidic in the first half which would have led to a penalty for the Gunners, so he believes United have little grounds for complaint.
