Kitson Deserved Red Says Evra

Kitson Deserved Red Says Evra

Manchester United's Patrice Evra claimed that Dave Kitson deserved all he got for the tackle he put in on the French international.

Kitso had been on the field less than a minute before seeing a red card for a tackle on Evra. His manager Steve Coppell defended the player saying that he was not dirty, but the tackle did warrant a punishment.

But Evra backed referee Rob Styles and insisted that a red card was the right decision and that a three match ban is the least he deserves.

Evra said: 'I went to kick the ball and I just saw his foot coming towards me.

'I don't understand why he did it. It was very bad. It is the right decision to send him off.'

Typical of a manchester united player that is, different when one of theirs does it, they are all over the ref like a rash then

Seen Kitson make that sort of challenge a 100 tiems before and catch the guy a few times. It was no different to any of those ones. It's clumsy, it's a foul, it's a booking. Styles couldn't get the card out quick enough, still he got to be the centre of attention so he'll be happy. Don't blame Kits, it's his way of playing and if you take it away he isn't the same. My concern is now for wednesday and the next couple of games after that. I naturally presume Long will play now. doesn't fill me with anticipation but there we go. Lots of people have said it (myself included) we are a decent striker short, today was evidence of it, a really quick striker is needed to play 4-5-1 effectively without just 'parking the bus' in front of your goal. Now with Lita AND Kitson out for the next 3 matches goals are a worry.

If it had been Evra against Kitson then no way on God's green Earth would Evra have been sent off.

Evra is right! IT WAS A SHOCKING TACKLE! And that's from a United hating Blue!

It was late, and clumsy and a definate booking, but I think he could have got away with just that. You see these tackles or the time and 5/10 will not see a red. Roles reversed, Evra wouldn't have gone.
