Nani's leg after the horror tackle by Carragher

A booking.........*sigh

As quoted in various reports today Nani has vented his anger at how Jamie Carragher has injured him with two x-rated tackles.

The United winger was left needing stitches in a gash down his left shin after the disgraceful challenge from Carragher at Anfield which amazingly only earned the Liverpool player a booking.

Nani has been quoted as saying:

“The time I looked at my leg, I was thinking the season is finished for me”

‘That’s why I was crying. I don’t know what Carragher was thinking but I do know what he did was not football. He came to apologise to me but I said I was nothappy when he did me.

“If you ask anyone in football after they have suffered a tackle like that, they are not going to accept an apology especially as it’s the second year he’s taken me out.”

“Before he put me out of the game for two months. He always tackles like that.

“I don’t want protection. I just want the referees to be fair.”

I personally believe that Nani was right in coming out in the media and having
his say on the Carragher challenge, especially after what had happened in the
weeks before the game with the Rooney elbow saga.

I don’t understand why the United front man was hung out to dry by the media for a elbow on Wigan’s JamesMcCarthy, and such a disgraceful challenge that could have been career ending by Carragher on Nani can just pass them by.

That challenge for me was more violent than the Rooney elbow but it hasn’t even been barely mentioned in any of the media who seemed to concerned with criticising united at any given opportunity. Are the which hunters out for United? It seems to be the case is this because we are going along nicely in three competitions are they trying to ruin our chances of making more history for our great club? Or am I being paranoid?

    Well if that includes honest to, little man! then we will all be doing more rolling around than you as you are told 9 times out of 10 “to stop diving and play acting”
    There will be no Golden Boot for you boy, but every chance of a “Golden Globe” LOL

    Your a joke Nani!!! Every single game you’re rolling around on the floor! No wonder Carragher only got a yellow card once the ref saw you get up, race over to demand a red card then drop back to the floor like u had just been shot a point blank range!! Your a disgrace to Football, I agree Carra should have had a red card, but you should have one in most matches for your constant play acting! You tried your best to get Dan Agger sent off in the match at your place earlier this season!! So dont moan to much lad. your nothing but a cheat!

    “I just want the referees to be fair.”

    Is one of the funniest quotes of all time. Mr Nani is a comedy genius

    I don’t get this, if Ferguson can be disciplined for wanting a ‘fair’ ref, why isn’t Nani?

    Maybe the sight of a professional footballer crying his eyes out on the pitch was too much for the ref, who could see that this diving, play acting cheat was making the most of it.

    We were told he had a gash to the bone, the fact he was playing so soon after told you that there wasn’t much wrong with him. Girl.

    The challenge deserved a red card. Everyone accepts that. However, there is a difference between a premeditated, malicious elbow by Rooney or Roy Keane’s tackle on Haaland years back and what was a poor but mistimed challenge by Carragher. If Carraghers intent was maliciously motivated he would not have attempted to apologise afterwards. Poor challenge yes, disgraceful in terms of intent no hence the difference in response from media and the majority of fans alike.

    There are many such tackles throughout the season and yes it was a red card offence, But referees will only be “fair” when they start accepting the critisism leveled at them week in and week out, not over one individual type of offence but over the inconsistency of thier judjment – not game to game but minute to minute in any one game. I am a Liverpool red, but when you see managers being diciplined by the F.A. (what does that stand for?)for speaking up then no wonder the standard of refereeing is so bad, they answer to nobody.

    Poor little Nani. Yes, it was a very poor tackle and, yes, it would have merited a red card, but have a look at the replays. It wasn’t Carragher’s intention to injure you, little Nani. He actually tried to get the ball. And he obviously felt really sorry about what has happened. Just grow up and accept an apology if someone offers a honest one. Just remember that you play for a club who used to employ men who kung-fu-kicked people who came to actually watch the match and not play in it or people who planned in advance to injure certain opposing players. That is actually criminal.

    By the way, the posters above are right, Nani. If refs were fair, you’d get a booking for every dive you make. That is constant unsporting behaviour from you. You’d probably never make it to the second half of any match as you’d collect two such bookings within the first.

  10. Lee says:

    You are completely right Nani, the ref wasn’t fair in the slightest. He SHOULD have sent you off for rolling around and crying like a little girl….again!!!

    5 match ban for Fergie – it’s about time he got his comeuppance, though it should have been more
