Manchester United star Paul Pogba played down the impact of referee decisions on his team in the Burnley match on Tuesday, which won the first match with a goal in the first round of the English Premier League.
The referee famously scored a yellow card for United player Luke Shaw after reviewing the video following an intervention by Burnley defender Edinson Cavani, before canceling a goal for the first due to defender Harry Maguire’s mistake.
Two decisions did not impress the Red Devils, which Pogba scored the victorious goal in the second half to top the championship standings.
The French told Sky Sports: “A difficult decision (which ended with a yellow card to Shao), but you have to be a professional. We knew that the matter will not be easy after the referee’s decision, which I disagree with.”
Then he added, “But I am not the decision-maker on the field, so we must keep calm and focused. Maguire’s goal was correct, I don’t know what happened. It was a beautiful goal and the referee decided to cancel it. A strange decision, but we got the result we wanted.”
The Red Devils now top the league standings, 3 points clear of Liverpool, the two ancient clubs clash at Anfield Road after 4 days.
A confrontation in which United are looking for a win over Liverpool that has not been achieved since March 2018.
