In  a startlingly frank interview Turkish referee Cuneyt Cakir has admitted the real reason behind his decision to send off Nani during United’s Champions League game against Real Madrid at Old Trafford. 

The whole of the footballing world was completely gobsmacked when what looked like a caution at best as Nani clashed with Arbeloa was deemed dangerous enough to warrant a red card.

Many pundits and fans took to the social networks to vent their disbelief while the whole of Old Trafford was left stunned by such a bizarre call by a referee who prior to the match  had been seen as one of the brightest young officials in Europe.

With Sir Alex Ferguson still to shocked to even conduct an interview- rumour has it he’s actually on a plane to Instanbul to  ‘have a word’ with Cakir, and Mickey Phelan still trying to remember what exactly he’s meant to do at training other than put out the cones, it’s a testing time for the Reds.
