Keane & Webb defend Moreno tackle
PSV’s Hector Moreno’s tackle on Manchester United’s Luke Shaw gave the defender a double fracture and will see him miss the next 5 months of football.
While many have labelled the challenge as horrific, former Manchester United player Roy Keane described it as brilliant.
He told ITV: “I thought it was a brilliant challenge. I love the physical side of the game. You can always tell by the players’ reactions – they are the best judges as they are near the tackle. They didn’t think it was a bad challenge at the time.
“When players are travelling at great speed then (injuries) are always going to happen. I am surprised there’s not more. It was an accident with his trailing foot.”
Retired referee Howard Webb also defended the decision of match referee Nicola Rizzoli not to book Moreno, saying Shaw was just unlucky.
“Luke Shaw’s injury was awful and I wish him a speedy recovery,” he said while working as a pundit on BT Sport.
