Bournemouth’s Eddie Howe Says Man United’s Romelu Lukaku Should Have Been Sent Off

The Sun (UK)

Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe says that Man United’s Romelu Lukaku should have been sent off during Manchester United’s 1-0 victory.

Howe said Lukaku, who scored the deciding goal, his first goal in the Premier League in a month, should been dismissed late in the first half.

“I thought the first tackle was a yellow card” Howe said (h/t ESPN FC).

“He was very late on Nathan. Then he picked up a clear yellow. He should have been off the pitch.”

Howe complimented his club despite the crushing loss.

“The players delivered the gameplan really well and we looked like we had a real cutting edge. We created chances right up until the end.”

“They have an outstanding goalkeeper who made a number of good saves and maybe we could have done better in and around their box, but when you consider the opposition and where were playing, I was very pleased with players.”
