Man Utd outrage over Cristiano Ronaldo penalty decision proven right after referee meeting

Former referee Dermot Gallagher’s thoughts are aligned with the outcome of the meeting, suggesting each team were wrongfully denied a penalty-a-piece.

“I was surprised [a penalty for Ronaldo] wasn’t given. I think it’s an easier decision to make to give a penalty,” Gallagher told Sky Sports.

“[Coufal] dangled a leg, they adjudged he tried to take it away, but he’d already gone too far into the challenge, for me.

On West Ham’s claim, he added: “The feeling on the field was that Soucek made the foul, but I think the defender takes the forward out and it’s a foul. He doesn’t realise he’s there, but he’s caught him.”
