Poll: UEFA will congratulate Cuneyt Cakir for Man Utd performance

Former Premier League ref Graham Poll says Cuneyt Cakir can be proud of his performance in Manchester United's Champions League defeat to Real Madrid. The Turk sent off Nani in a decision which has been widely condemned.

Poll wrote in the Daily Mail: "Cakir was having a superb game. He was almost faultless in the first half and despite the debate of the Nani red card he continued refereeing consistently through the game and would, I expect, be congratulated by UEFA on his performance.

"Unlike Rio Ferdinand, who could well face a charge for his sarcastic applauding in the face of Cakir after the final whistle."

 Is Poll right to praise Cakir? Are United fans putting too much blame on the Turk? Give us your shout below...
