During last night’s 3-1 victory over Hull, Adnan Januzaj was the victim of a nasty stamp by David Meyler.
Januzaj rolled down his sock to show the referee the damage that had been done, but a freekick was awarded in Hull’s favour instead.
This is the second time Januzaj has been stamped on. In November, Fulham’s Sascha Riether was banned for three matches after accepting a FA charge of violent conduct.
Giggs says our player’s leg is in a mess and that the referees need to protect him.
“I didn’t see it but I’ve seen his leg,” he said. “It’s the second time it has happened to him this season. It’s not great to see, and it’s terrible his leg. He needs protecting. He’s a brilliant, exciting player and the authorities need to sort it out. It’s just the length of his leg, not cutting into his skin. It goes form his knee to his ankle.”
