Daniel Amartey deserved the red card - Mourinho

Ghana defender Daniel Amartey was sent off in their English Premier League game with Manchester United on Saturday.

Many Leicester City fans were not in agreement with referee Moss' decision to send the Ghanaian international off.

But Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has launched a scathing attack on Leicester City supporters insisting that Daniel Amartey deserved the red card.

The home supporters charged on referee John Moss, booing him for the decision as well as ‘denying’ Leicester a penalty while trailing the visitors 2-1.

Harry Maguire eventually snatched a point for the Foxes following a late equaliser.

“I know that [referee] Moss had a very good performance,” said Mourinho, as quoted by Leicester Mercury.

“A performance that the Leicester supporters were complaining with everything, without any reason.

“The red card [to Daniel Amartey] was a red card, the two yellows were two yellows. The free-kicks were free-kicks, the yellow card to Mahrez is a yellow card to Mahrez because he dived.

Leicester City drew 2-2 with Manchester United at the King Power Stadium on Saturday.
