The handball that costed Manchester United

Manchester United Left-back Luke Shaw has taken full responsibility for awarding the penalty in Manchester United’s final 1-0 defeat to Brighton at the Amex Stadium on Thursday night.

The match appeared to have ended goalless, before Brighton were awarded a penalty well before injury time after Shaw raised his arm to touch a cross from flank. Referee André Marriner turned down VAR intervention and ruled that the penalty should have been awarded.

Alexis Mack Allister scored the winning goal to deliver a valuable win for the home side and United’s first Premier League defeat in just over a month in the process.

But to Shaw’s credit, he stepped up and took full responsibility for such a devastating blow. was. “It hurt so much,” Shaw told Sky Sports. “I think it was last minute, last minute action.

“I got a little poke, but of course my hand shouldn’t be there. I stand by it and grab it by the chin. I lost the game and it’s tough.”

The defender refused to use this as an excuse, but he felt that a free-kick in United’s favor should have been awarded before the ball was dealt with.

“I can’t even explain why my hands are up,” added the defender. “Obviously I said there was a nudge and maybe that helped lift the arm, but it still shouldn’t be there.

“I don’t think the free-kick given before that, even from the corner, was a foul. I’m not looking for an excuse for what I did, but I don’t think it could have been a foul foul.” We were connected.

“Maybe this corner shouldn’t have happened to me. But of course I can’t change it and I have nothing to blame the referee for. I don’t think it was a foul, but I raised my hand and it was a stupid mistake, so I lost a point.”
