 Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Labels Nemanja Matic’s Red Card At Man City An ‘Absolute Joke’

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer branded the decision to give Nemanja Matic two yellow cards an “absolute joke” as Manchester United exited the Carabao Cup at Manchester City.

After Matic himself opened the scoring at the Etihad in the Carabao Cup semi-final, second leg, making it 3-2 to city on aggregate, the Serb was first given a yellow card for a foul on Riyad Mahrez, before tugging back Ilkay Gundogan with 14 minutes remaining to make United’s task even harder.

United boss Solskjaer was not shy in criticising referee Andre Marriner’s decision, pointing to City’s own cynical fouls. In fact, both sides committed the same number of fouls, while Solskjaer also pinpointed fouls on Dan James (fouled once) and Jesse Lingard (three times).
