‘Nani red right decision’

The referee who controversially sent-off Manchester United winger Nani in their 2-1 defeat to Real Madrid on Tuesday has claimed he still believes he made the right decision.

Cuneyt Cakir showed the Portuguese international the red card for a foul on Alvaro Arbeloa 11 minutes into the second-half with United 1-0 up on the night and leading 2-1 on aggregate.

However, two goals in 13 minutes after the incident swung the tie decisively in Madrid’s favour and left United boss Sir Alex Ferguson and many of his players furious at the final whistle.

“I feel fine and don’t doubt my decisions,” the Turkish official told a Spanish sports daily.

“The red card shown to Nani was correct. The world will recognise the truth with time.” Cakir has also sent off Chelsea’s John Terry against Barcelona in 2012 Champions League semi final.
