Jose Mourinho thinks referee Craig Pawson made a deficient resolution not to award Manchester United a penalty right through their Zero-Zero draw with Southampton.
The Purple Devils couldn’t spoil down Mauricio Pellegrino’s aspect as they dropped to 3rd within the league after Chelsea’s Five-Zero victory over Stoke lifted them above Mourinho’s males.
The Saints had in all probability the 2 best possible possibilities of the fit when Wesley Hoedt headed vast and Shane Lengthy was once denied by means of David de Gea initially of 2d part – earlier than Paul Pogba had a objective chalked off for offside for United.
And chatting with journalists after the fit, Mourinho was once unsatisfied with Pawson’s resolution not to give a penalty when the ball touched Maya Yoshida’s arm.
“I feel it is usually a disappointing afternoon for Craig [Pawson, the referee] as a result of he’s an implausible referee, one of the crucial best possible in Europe,” mentioned Mourinho.
“We ignored simple possibilities however I’m in reality unsatisfied with the penalty, now not with Pawson’s efficiency – As of late I feel Craig had a excellent efficiency, it was once a large resolution to make from Craig.
“I’m proud of the gamers’ perspective, the gamers’ wants and I’m more than pleased with my position.”
