Man Utd boss Ferguson: Kompany deserved red. He does that all the time

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson says Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany deserved his red card.

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson says Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany deserved his red card.

Kompany, who will now serve a four-game ban if City fail in their intended appeal, won the ball but was shown a straight red card by referee Chris Foy for lunging in two-footed at Nani.

Ferguson said: "It was a sending-off.

"It was a two-footed tackle. I have seen him do it before.

"He has got off with it in the past. But if Nani gets caught, he has a problem. It was a real bad one."
