Ridiculously harsh! Man United’s Nemanja Vidic shown red for ‘yellow card challenge’ at Chelsea [GIF]
Manchester United slipped further away from the top after a 3-1 defeat to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
To compound their misery, Nemanja Vidic was shown a controversial straight red in injury time for a foul on Eden Hazard.
It was not a pretty challenge and certainly warranted a booking but the red card shown by Phil Dowd clearly surprised the Serbian.
Vidic will now be suspended for Man United’s crucial Capital One Cup Semi-final on Wednesday.
Lying 7th in the table, Man United are now 12 points behind 3rd placed Chelsea.
