Criticism continues over the ‘unsportsmanlike behavior’ of ‘19-year-old phenom’ Alejandro Garnacho (Manchester United).
Manchester United won 1-0 in the third match of Group A of the 2023-2024 European Champions League (UCL) group stage against FC Copenhagen (Denmark) held at Old Trafford in Manchester, England on the 25th (Korean time). Manchester United, who had been driven to the brink by two consecutive losses, made a comeback by taking three points.
However, it was a win achieved after many twists and turns. Manchester United took the lead in the 27th minute of the second half with a header goal from Harry Maguire.
The joy was short-lived, and the biggest crisis came just before the end of the game. Scott McTominay kicked an opposing player in the face while kicking the ball away.
The referee declared a penalty kick. Although Manchester United players protested, the decision was not overturned.
Copenhagen’s Jordan Larsson took over as penalty kicker. There was a dramatic twist.
Goalkeeper Andre Onana, who was reduced to a ‘scam’, shined for the first time since transferring to Manchester United. He threw his body to block and gave a precious victory.
But that wasn’t everything. Garnacho’s actions during the penalty kick became controversial. While his teammates protested, he ‘damaged’ the penalty kick spot by hitting it with both feet. The purpose was to interfere with the penalty kick.
But referee Marco Guida was busy dealing with the angry Manchester United players. I didn’t see Garnacho’s actions.
Kim Källström, who played for the Swedish national team on loan from Arsenal, criticized the act, saying, “It’s really ugly behavior. It’s so childish. It’s really childish.” There are also voices being raised that Garnacho should be subject to posthumous disciplinary action.토스카지노 주소
However, coach Erik ten Haag remained silent. He avoided giving a direct answer, saying, “I didn’t see it. The referee probably didn’t see it either. I don’t know.”
