Tottenham goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes criticises referee for Inter red card

Brazilian also confident ahead of Manchester United trip
Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes has labelled his red card against Inter as "too much" and is confident of a result against Manchester United.

Gomes, 29, was given his marching orders in the mid-week 4-3 Champions League defeat after he felled Jonathan Biabiany in the penalty area. Speaking to Sky Sports News, the Brazil international believed the decision only merited a caution.

"It's difficult for me to watch the game on TV after I was sent off. I think a red card from the referee is too much," Gomes said.

"If he's given me a yellow card, that's OK. I didn't go to make a challenge, I went to save the ball.

"It was a difficult game for us with 10 men, but the lads did OK."

Spurs travel next weekend to Old Trafford for a crucial Premier League clash. With United set to be without Wayne Rooney and yet to hit top gear, Gomes stated he "believe[s] in his team."

The ex-PSV Eindhoven shot stopper added: "They are still Manchester United and a big team, with big history. You need to go there full of confidence, but we know how difficult it is to play there.

"But, I believe in my team. I believe that in a great moment you can make a great game there."
