[PICTURE] Ashley Cole’s Horrendous ‘Tackle’ on Javier Hernandez

By on September 18, 2011

Manchester United came out on top in a dramatic game at Old Trafford, but United will be hoping Javier Hernandez will overcome this challenge from Ashley Cole late in the second half. As United’s Mexican striker struck a rebound into the side netting, Ashley Cole came in with a lunging challenge which could have been very dangerous indeed.

Hernandez was treated, clearly in a lot of pain, but was able to hobble off of the pitch to be substituted by Dimitar Berbatov. Cole was yellow carded, but no penalty was given.

        You’re saying chelsea dominated cos they took more shots? We had more possession and we should have gotten another penalty for thay dirty tackle, no-one can argue about that. With a player like Torres who missed what could easily be the easiest chance ever, domination can’t mean much if you can’t score. SNM

        both teams had chances difference is United took theirs. plus united hit the bar and the post, and missed a peno. so u couldnt say chelsea deserved to win. especially since they lost 3-1 dickhead

    Are you serious? you must have been watching a different game. As a neutral observer (Everton fan) it was a cracking game, Chelsea were far better than I expected but still outplayed by an exceptionally fluid Man U. Torres, poor lad, played himself into, and then sadly out of the game, but you as Chelsea fans must be encoiuraged by his movement and nicely taken goal. The other talking points, Rooneys miss – one of those things, and for me the most contentious one Ashley Coles horrendous challenge on Hernandez, how on earth that wasn’t straight red is quite beyond me, one of the worst I have seen in a long time. Now you have to excuse my ignorance, but how is it not a penalty also? it was a very bad challenge inside the box albeit after the ball had gone? Seems to me that Ash Cole should consider himself VERY fortunate indeed.

    Ashley Cole is a disgrace – moaning to the referee rather than seeing to Hernandez after that leg breaker. A straight red and a penalty without a doubt – England is the only country in the world where that tackle would be tolerated. Yellow card and Hernandez is off to hospital – while Cole will be back home for Sunday dinner…

    first Kavin Davies tries to destroy cleverly and now Cole almost killing Hernandez….who’s next? they seem to target our young players. maybe phil jones. these assholes should be fouled so hard so that they could never even think of playing football.
