It appears that Newcastle’s Ryan Taylor was less than impressed with the decision to award Manchester United a penalty today.
Ashley Young was again at the center of controversy as he exaggerated contact from Ciaran Clark to earn Manchester United a penalty after 6 minutes. Coming just a week after the penalty against QPR, Ryan Taylor took to his Twitter account to have a go at Young before deleting the tweet.
But we caught it!
There was no need for such exaggeration from Young but there was contact and it was definitely a penalty. Ben Hibbs summed up the situation up best when he tweeted:
There’s contact, Young exaggerates. Diving isn’t always solely motivated by desire to cheat. If impeded & stay on feet, do you get a pen?
