Owen Hargreaves Fumes At Marcus Rashford’s Red Card


Marcus Rashford’s red card during Manchester United’s trip to Copenhagen for the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday was a contentious and detrimental decision. Paul Scholes and Owen Hargreaves, TNT Sports pundits, concurred that it wasn’t a red “in a million years” but questioned the referee’s “understanding.” After being reduced to 10 men in Denmark, United gave up a two-goal lead in a matter of minutes.

According to Owen Hargreaves, Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford didn’t deserve to be sent off against Copenhagen, “in a million years,” but Paul Scholes thinks the referee lacked “understanding” in making the call.

The striker’s dismissal from United’s UEFA Champions League match in the Danish capital on Wednesday night came late in the first half due to a foul on Elias Jelert.

The TNT Sports analysts countered that Rashford didn’t act maliciously and that the incident should have turned out differently because it was an unintentional one.

Before making the call, VAR requested that Lithuanian referee Donatas Rumsas review the footage on the pitchside monitor.
Rasmus Hojlund’s double put Erik ten Hag’s team up 2-0 at the break, but they soon gave up two goals to draw even. It was a disastrous moment for the team.

Asked at half-time if it was a red card, Hargreaves said: “Not in a million years. Marcus is just trying to put his foot in front of the ball, he’s not even looking at the defender.

“He’s just trying to put his leg up so the defender bumps into him. When you see a still, and this is the first thing the referee sees when he walks over, it looks horrendous.

“But in real time, he’s not trying to foul him. I know it looks poor, but it’s not malicious, it’s not serious foul play. It’s just a foul, it’s just clumsy. It’s not a red.

“They’ve got to stop re-reffing these games like that because it’s ruining it.”

Scholes, a former midfielder for the Red Devils, concurred with another pundit.

“I think that’s where the understanding of the referee has to come into it,” Scholes said.

“It’s an accident. Marcus Rashford is trying to plant his foot, protect the ball, he’s not even looked at the kid. Accidentally, he’s caught his leg.

“This is where the referee’s understanding of the game needs to come into question.”

United had taken just four points from their first three Group A games, jeopardizing their prospects of moving on, so they went to Denmark in desperate need of a victory.
