Mark Clattenburg argues Ashley Young’s challenge on Angel Di Maria was acceptable

13 February 2019

Paris Saint Germain scored the first goal of the game in the second half after Angel di Maria provided a brilliant assist to Kimpembe.

Angel Di Maria had the last laugh on his return to Old Trafford as he inspired Paris Saint-Germain to a 2-0 win over Manchester United while being the subject of abuse and anger from the home supporters.

We highlighted earlier that DI MARIA would return to Old Trafford and he played like he had a point to prove. The injuries to Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard towards the end of the first half necessitated a change in formation after the interval, with Pogba drifting further forward and into a central position, alongside substitutes Alexis Sanchez and Juan Mata in playing just behind frontman Marcus Rashford.

Di Maria was clearly fired up and utilised his limited grasp of English to taunt the Old Trafford crowd during the celebrations.

On Tuesday, Di Maria was shoved into a fence by Ashley Young, hurting his arm in the process.

Young's shoulder barge on Di Maria into the hoardings was definitely careless and using excessive force, and under this language he should have been shown a second yellow card.

The Paris Saint-Germain player and former teammate was seeing a ball off the sideline as Young made a decision to contest it with him, with no real attempt to get a foot to the ball.

In Washington, a self-described underage teen wrote in January that his or her mother would not allow vaccines. Lindenberger said he confronted his mother with the information, but she simply rebuffed him.

"He can count himself fortunate not to have been sent off last night". Shoulder-to-shoulder challenges may be allowed but when Young made contact, the ball had gone.

"There was no way either player was going to win it".

"Although VAR was in action last night, Orsato was not able to review this incident as second yellow cards can not be checked".

Other spectators thought the right-back should not be praised for a reckless foul. Young knows that the touchline at Old Trafford slopes away and could have injured his opponent.

"There was nothing to be gained in this situation". It wasn't the best period of my career, or they didn't let me have my best time there.
