Man Utd No2 Phelan: There is contact in football, y'know

Manchester United No2 Mike Phelan says Nani's dismissal against Real Madrid was "unbelievable".

There can be no denying United's opposition to the decision to send Nani off in the 56th minute.

"From our point of view, we felt the ball was in the air, the player was watching the ball," Phelan said. "Yes, there was contact, but that's the nature of football and to get a red card seems unbelievable."
