UEFA have come out and said that they have no problem with referee Cuneyt Cakir’s performance yesterday at Old Trafford after he controversially sent off Nani for a dangerous foul.
While many United fans will still feel cheated, I think it was a correct decision. While I have sympathize with Nani, what he did was still dangerous play. And, as harsh as it may seem, the red card was the correct decision.
