Leicester City Boss Angry With Rashford’s Penalty Decision. Read What He Has To Say


Manchester United beat Leicester City 1-0 on Saturday at Old Trafford thanks to a Marcus Rashford first-half penalty.

Just seven minutes into the game, Rashford was bundled over by Caglar Soyuncu in the box and left referee Martin Atkinson with no choice but to point to the spot.

Foxes boss Brendan Rodgers admitted it was probably a penalty, but suggested Rashford went down too easily looking for the decision.

He said after the game: “It was a soft penalty but I think it was one. Rashford is cute. There is a little bit of contact.”

However, United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed that he wants Manchester United to play better and dominate than we did against Leicester City.

“I think you can say team spirit, character, trusting our principles got us through,” Solskjaer said after the game.

“It’s the first time this season we’ve had to defend for longer periods, I think we did it excellently.

“Of course, we want to play better than this, have the ball and dominate but sometimes you play against the teams that give you problems and I thought we rode the game out well.”
