Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson was far from enamoured with the performance of referee Steve Bennett, following Cristiano Ronaldo's late red card against Portsmouth.



The Premier League champions could only take a 1-1 draw away from their trip to Fratton Park and collective frustrations were exacerbated by Ronaldo's red card in the final stages, after he appeared to head-butt Portsmouth substitute Richard Hughes.


Ferguson concedes that from his position he could not see the incident clearly but admits Ronaldo was wrong to strike out, even though the Portuguese claims he was provoked.


i do want to know what proked ronaldo...but ronaldo should have never done it in the 1st place...now he misses 3 matches....stupid

stupid yes, (right in front of a trgger happy shit ref)

but it was only head to head there was no headbutt

if ref bennet classes this as a red card lets see some consitency- there will be players off every week- players square up to each other in every prem game like this

It was a bit more than 'head-to-head' - if you're honest with youself.

That is why 10 player suddenly all run toward the incident to break it up !!!

Fergie gave the ref a hard time and then say he couldn't see the incident clearly !!!

How can he do this ?

Anyway......the fact is Ronaldo WAS sent off and he WILL serve a 3 match ban whether people agree with it or not....so now we must move on and make the best of the 3 games without him........

.........one man does not make a club !!!

3 match ban for self defence. **** Off FA. Get Real. The defender almost punched Ronaldo in the head, he got a right to retaliate. Yellow at most IMO. On MOTD they showed what the portsmouth guy did. Ronaldo just walking and he starts swinging and snarling at him, I would have decked him.
