It was a clear penalty, how are we supposed to feel that we didn't whistle something like that," said Xavi. "Even against Inter in the Champions League, they didn't whistle in our favor, and here we are again.
I don't know anymore what a hand touch is that is considered a penalty.
It's amazing in my eyes this decision-making."
On the other hand, Erik ten Haag attacked the decision not to draw a red card to Conde and award a penalty to the Red Devils: "It was a critical moment for us in the game and I haven't watched it again yet, but I can't understand how Rashford would have fallen like that Easily.
He touched him, it was a clear touch.
Maybe it's not a sure penalty, maybe outside the box, but one hundred percent a foul and a red card."
