Sunderland won 2-1 against Manchester United the Capital One Cup encounter from last night, but success did not prevent the hosts coach Gustavo Poyet to attack the champions of the Premier League.
At the end of the match, the Uruguayan Poyet criticized arbitration, one of the biggest problem being about how much time was left to continue the game into overtime. “I thought it returned Ferguson” was the irony thrown by Sunderland coach, who alluded to how often such cases were when Sir Alex was in charge of the Red Devils.
“In the first half left a minute and 45 seconds, and in the second left five minutes and 50 seconds. For a moment, I thought that Sir Alex Ferguson is back on the bench.” said Gustavo Poyet at the press conference after the game.
Finally, Sunderland won 2-1 the first leg of the Capital One Cup semifinal. The finalist will be decided on January 22, after the return clash from Old Trafford. If Man United will be eliminated, David Moyes will bear great criticism, given the weak position (seventh) which is currently his team in the Premier League.
