After suffering third defeat in a row, Manchester United manager David Moyes is surely feeling the pressure at the moment. The Red Devils suffered a 2-1 defeat against Sunderland last night and Moyes was furious with some of the referring decisions that went against them.
Fabio Borini scored the winner from a controversial penalty. United crashed for the third consecutive defeat for the first time since 2001, while it was the first victory for Sunderland against the Champions in twenty attempts.
He said after the match: “I feel we are having to play the opposition and the officials. They gave a free-kick on the first goal that I couldn’t believe. I thought the referee was going to blow in our direction. It was a terrible decision.
“We are all just laughing at them at the minute. We get a player booked for doing the same. Maybe I have got to understand that’s what happens at Manchester United – they are certainly not giving us much at this moment in time.”
Meanwhile, the Erik Lamela situation is getting intense day by day. The record signing of Tottenham has turned out to be a huge flop as he struggled to settle in to the new conditions in England. There are suggestions of him going back to Italy on loan or may be permanently, while Tottenham Hotspur are unwilling to sell any of their star players, in the winter transfer window.
Erik Lamela’s father has spoken to the press about his son’s unhappiness and claimed that he is interested in returning to Italy.
“Erik is not happy and wants to go back to Italy,” he said as quoted by the Metro.
“He has been linked with Lazio, but I don’t know anything about this. Could he re-join Roma? I don’t know.”
Tottenham paid a huge amount of money for him and it will be a ludicrous idea to sell him within first six months only. A loan move would do a world of good for Lamela, especially the world cup is approaching and he needs regular game time as well, but a permanent move is simply out of the question at the moment.
