In the 2-2 draw with Man Utd, Southampton’s Orion Romeu entered the ball with a shoe under Mason Greenwood but did not receive a ticket. In the situation Mason Greenwood was accompanied by Ryan Bertrand at the end of the first half.
Orion Romeu unexpectedly approached to support the defense and mixed the ball with a shoe under the striker Man Utd. Greenwood rolled onto the pitch after being fouled and in pain. However, Romeu does not need to receive a ticket, even when referee Chris Kavanagh consulted VAR.
On Sky Sports, Gary Neville and Matt Le Tissier debated the ball of former Chelsea midfielder with Greenwood. The former Man Utd player believes that the Southampton midfielder deserves a red card after a rough play. “I don’t like this. I think it’s a bad play,” Neville said.
He said: “Only kickers who break the opponent’s foot play like that.” Meanwhile, coach Ole Solskjaer said: “I know Greenwood’s ankle will not like this. I can sit out for a month because of the injury from that phase.”
Welcoming Southampton at home, Greenwood continues to be coached by coach Ole Solskjaer. However, the young Englishman was unable to maintain his scoring form and left the field in the 84th minute to make way for Daniel James. This season, Greenwood had 9 goals in 28 appearances in the Premier League.
“I disagree with Neville, I don’t think it was a foul that led to the red card. Everything looked ugly when we watched the slow-motion situation. Romeu pulled his foot back. The force of the ball was things that justify him a lot. Obviously, things only get worse when we watch the slow motion, “Le Tissier said.
He thought it is just an accidental situation, unlike the other red cards this season”.
