Man Utd boss insists Shelvey deserved red card
Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has insisted that Liverpool star Jonjo Shelvey deserved to be sent off during the clash at Anfield this afternoon.
The England youngster was sent off by referee Mark Halsey just before half time, following a challenge on United defender Jonny Evans.
Ferguson told BBC Sport: "Jonjo Shelvey's sending off was a clear red card, there was a dangerous attempt to go for the ball.
"Jonny Evans went for the ball and got it, and I don't think there was any other decision referee could make."
United won 2-1 against Liverpool.
