‘Robbery’ – Manchester United fans in disbelief over controversial Real Sociedad penalty

Manchester United suffered a 1-0 defeat to Real Sociedad in their Europa League opener.

The only goal came from a controversial penalty decision from the referee.

Real Sociedad were given a penalty decision in their favour after an alleged handball from second half substitute Lisandro Martinez.

The replays show the ball hit the Argentine’s leg before deflecting off his hand.

While the referee and VAR will argue that Martinez’s arms were in an ‘unnatural position’, it was very harsh to give a penalty to La Real.

United fans were angered by the decision. Check out their reactions below via Twitter:

  1. The rules are very clear. Just google them and the answer is there. That was not a penalty and the official must be reprimanded for his unacceptable decision. Strike this fella of the UEFA referees list. Wait, he never made the effort to look at the TV screen. Scandalous.
