"Martial Said It Wasn't A Foul", Jan Bednarek Opens Up On Penalty Incident Vs Manchester United.

Jan Bednarek was sent off late on for Southampton against Manchester United for blocking Antony Martial from scoring in the box.

Southampton received their first Red card in the second minute of the game after a horrible tackle of Alexandre Janketwiz on Scot Mctominay.

United took the advantage of injury-hit Southampton side plus red card to shorecase their winning desires.

However, the late red card was one of the biggest post match talking points.Martial was through on goal when he went down under pressure from Bednarek, despite the Southampton defender seemingly trying to avoid the United attacker and minimise contact between the two.

Mike Dean after consulting VAR, he decided to send off the Defender for a professional foul that led to a goal by Bruno Fernandes.

Walking towards the tunnel, Bednarek was clearly surprised to have been dismissed, turning to a member of Southampton's coaching staff and saying: "Martial said it wasn't a foul".

In your opinion, do you think it wasn't a foul?
