Amartey deserved the red card against Manchester United, says Mourinho

The Portuguese manager has hit out at Leicester City supporters who booed referee Moss for handing the Ghana international his marching orders

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has launched a scathing attack on Leicester City supporters insisting that Daniel Amartey deserved the red card he received in their 2-2 stalemate at the King Power Stadium on Saturday.

The home supporters charged on referee John Moss, booing him for the decision as well as ‘denying’ Leicester a penalty while trailing the visitors 2-1.

Harry Maguire eventually snatched a point for the Foxes following a late equaliser.

“I know that [referee] Moss had a very good performance,” said Mourinho, as quoted by Leicester Mercury

“A performance that the Leicester supporters were complaining with everything, without any reason.
