Fulham boss Marco Silva has slammed the performance of referee Chris Kavanagh in Manchester United’s 3-1 FA Cup win over Fulham.

“Let’s talk about all the game and not just one moment. Until the penalty we were clear [sic] the best team of the pitch – clear,” Fulham head coach Silva told ITV.

“The [red card] was a decision that VAR can make. What is difficult for us to understand is why the two moments in their box in the first half: one of them is a clear penalty on Mitrovic, and no one checks, no one wants to see anything…”

Silva also disagreed with his own sending-off: “If you ask me whether it should be a red card, I have big doubts. I would like to know what the referee will write [in his report] about what I said to him.”
