Back in November, United drew 2-2 with Arsenal at the Emirates, a point the gooners celebrated heartily. The first goal came just before half time, after Ronaldo played the ball in to Wayne Rooney. Rooney flicked the ball past Almunia, taking a deflection off William Gallas.It was announced earlier this week the the Dubious Goals Committee have ruled that the goal has been put down as a Gallas own goal, taking his league goals tally down to six.
Rooney has today revealed he is non too happy about the decisions, particularly in light of how many of Frank Lampard’s goals find the back of the net thanks to a deflection.
“I don’t know who gives and doesn’t give these goals,” he said. “Over the last three years, Frank Lampard has had about 50 deflected goals and never had one took off him. I’ve had one deflected goal and had it took off me, so maybe they need to look at the game a bit closer.”
Was it a Rooney or Gallas goal?
