Adnan Januzaj produced another superb performance for United on Saturday, as Fulham struggled to cope with the talented winger’s skills. Januzaj had to endure some tough challenges all day, but Sascha Riether took it a step too far with a malicious stamp on the teenager late in the game, which could’ve ended his career.
That may sound a tad melodramatic but take a close look at the Fulham man’s actions and make your own mind up. One thing’s for sure, with the referee Lee Probert seemingly oblivious to the challenge, the FA could decide to take retrospective action against Riether and if they do then the defender could end up with a lengthy ban.
The stamp infuriated team mate Marouane Fellaini who was near to Januzaj when it happened and seemed set on taking on the entire Fulham side at one point, although thankfully he didn’t. The last thing Fellaini needs is a red card and the last thing Januzaj needs are ridiculous challenges like this.
