EPL: Souness blasts referee after Man Utd beat Spurs, claims Pogba should have seen red

Graeme Souness has criticised referee Mike Dean for not sending off Manchester United midfielder, Paul Pogba, for his challenge on Tottenham’s Dele Alli.

Pogba set up Marcus Rashford for the only goal of the game, as United secured a 1-0 victory at Wembley.

However, Souness believes that Pogba’s challenge in the 78th minute, should have resulted in a red card instead of a yellow.

Speaking on Sky Sports, Souness said: “I think it’s a red card. And there’s not one ounce of doubt in my mind. He knew what he was doing.

“You step over it, you use your strength to keep the player away, but look where the ball is, look where the foot is.

“If that referee doesn’t see that as a red card, he sees it as a foul, he sees it as a yellow card, then he knows nothing about football, the referee. There wasn’t one ounce of doubt in my mind he’s gone over the ball to do him.”
