Man Utd ace Van Persie lashes out over Champions League exit

Manchester United striker Robin van Persie is still angry over the manner of their Champions League exit to Real Madrid The turning point was Nani's dismissal by ref Cüneyt Cakir.

Van Persie told Algemeen Dagblad: "Nani could not help it, he hardly touched Álvaro Arbeloa. For an hour everything was good, the tactics right. We really had the feeling that we were going to score the second goal and then it would become very difficult for Real Madrid.

"But when the referee pulled out the red card ..."

Van Persie continued: "The worst thing is that UEFA supports him.

"I think that is cowardly, because I do not understand it. Why not say honestly: 'He has not seen it?'"

 Should RvP just move on? Or is his anger still legit? Give us your shout below...
