Man Utd boss Ferguson believes Chelsea’s Torres deserved red card

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has weighed in on the Fernando Torres diving row by saying the Chelsea forward deserved the second yellow card shown to him by referee Mark Clattenburg for going to ground too easily under challenge from Jonny Evans.

The decision to send off the Spain international coupled with the previous red card shown to Blues defender Branislav Ivanovic tilted the balance of the game towards Red Devils, who cut the gap between the two sides at the top of the Premier League table to only one point.


However, according to the Daily Record, Ferguson has rejected claims that Clattenburg erred in his judgement that Torres had dived.


Well, did he intend to dive? Jonny Evans may have caught him a little bit but you can carry on running, which he could’ve done,” said the 70-year-old.


But he chose to go down. He could’ve carried on and scored. That’s what I can’t understand.


I would’ve never missed that chance,” Ferguson added. “I would’ve taken it in my time. I would’ve never gone down. But he did go down - that’s the issue - and he’s already been booked. So it’s his own fault.


Torres’ departure in the 68th minute was quickly followed by Ferguson’s decision to bring on an extra striker in Javier Hernandez, a gamble that paid off as the Mexican scored his third goal in a week to secure victory for the Old Trafford side.
