Sir Alex Ferguson is crying foul after Manchester United tied with Swansea on Sunday, ending Man U’s five game win streak and letting Man City gain points on them on the table. The 1-1 match included goals by Patrice Evra in the 16th minute for Man U and Johnathan De Guzman for Swansea in the 29th. Late in the match, is what had Fergie crying foul, when Robbie Van Persie hit the crossbar on a rocket and Swansea defense man Ashley Williams cleared the ball right into RVP’s face after the whistle had blown. Fergie said “The Van Persie situation you can clearly see that he could have been killed. He should be banned for a long time because that was the most dangerous thing I’ve seen on a football field for many years. It was absolutely deliberate. The whistle has gone, the game has stopped and he has done that right in front of the referee. He could have killed the lad.” Williams was shocked of the accusation and reacted “I was trying to clear the ball, and it hit him in his head.” Great recap Ashley.
Sir Alex, obviously frustrated with the tie, was also upset because of the late win by Manchester City versus Reading put The Citizens only 4 points back. Garerth Barry headed the ball into the back of the net from a cross from David Silva in extra time. The Reds and the Blues are back on the pitch on Wednesday taking on New Castle and Sunderland respectfully.
