After going a goal behind with less than a minute played, things weren’t looking good for Manchester United at White Hart Lane.
Our lads managed to get us in a favourable position though thanks to goals from Ryan Giggs and Anderson, but with over half an hour to go, United were reduced to ten men and faced a tough challenge. Thankfully, we made the most of our dominance and Wayne Rooney made it 3-1
“It was a terrible sending off, I think the referee got it wrong,” said Ferguson. “I have looked at the video twice and I don’t see any sending off. The Tottenham player is the one who has committed the real foul. Scholesy was a foot above him. He’s never touched him. He’s been sent off because his name is Paul Scholes. That is why he was sent off. It was a ridiculous decision. It could have mattered. You are down to 10 men against Tottenham and only have a one-goal advantage. It’s not easy.”
