What do you think about this? Should it have been a yellow to Fred or should it have been a penalty?
Should #MUFC have had a penalty?
🎙️ "It wasn't a dive. It certainly wasn't a yellow card."
Fred is booked for diving but there was contact from Otamendi! 🟨

Different fans have different opinions on the matter.
How can Mike Dean be impartial when United thrashed his beloved Tranmere 6-0 a few weeks ago? He’s just proved by booking Fred for diving instead of giving the penalty that he isn’t #MUNMCI #MUFC #PremierLeague

Fred is kicked by Otamendi in the box and is booked for diving. That’s a terrible decision. Should be a clear penalty?!

Fred gets booked for diving for contact when it's a penalty….Where the hell is VAR????

Wait a second. That’s a penalty. So how is VAR not calling that? And how does Fred get a yellow card?
