Ferguson criticises referee Atkinson

Post by tammy on Wed Mar 02, 2011 5:18 am

Sir Alex Ferguson hit out at referee Martin Atkinson after Manchester United's 2-1 defeat by Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

David Luiz, who had levelled Wayne Rooney's excellent opener with a superb volley, tripped the United striker on the edge of the box. As Luiz had already been booked, it should have brought the Brazilian's dismissal. Instead, Atkinson waved play on and as Chelsea countered, pointed to the spot when Yuri Zhirkov tumbled under Chris Smalling's challenge.

"You hope you get a strong referee in games like this," said Ferguson. "It was a major game for both clubs. You want a fair referee - or a strong referee, anyway - and we didn't get that. I don't know why he has got the game. I must say, when I saw who the referee was I did fear it. I feared the worst."

Ferguson's mind must have immediately drifted back to the corresponding fixture last season when he felt Chelsea had first been given a debatable free-kick, then Didier Drogba was allowed to get away with a clear foul on Wes Brown to allow John Terry to score the winner.
