News, views and rumours relating to Manchester United in the past 24 hours.
Goals from Wayne Rooney and Patrice Evra had looked to be enough to take three points back to Old Trafford until Cardiff’s Kim Bo-Kyung came off the bench to equalize in the 91st minute.
There were a number of controversial incidents at the Cardiff City Stadium but the home side’s Gary Medel has escaped an FA charge for slapping Marouane Fellaini in a penalty area tussle.
Meanwhile, Wayne Rooney admitted to his ‘bad tackle’ on Jordan Mutch, which led to the set piece from which the equalizer was scored by Cardiff.
"Just watched game back. I agree mine was bad tackle and ref dealt with it," said Rooney who was shown a yellow card by referee Neil Swarbrick.
"You can't write United off but they are not looking a strong team at the moment," said Souness.
"They should have come to Cardiff, dominated the ball and had chance after chance, but they didn't and are just huffing and puffing at the moment.”
Meanwhile, Manchester City beat Tottenham 6-0 at the Etihad on Sunday but, despite the defeat Spurs defender Jan Vertonghen insists Spurs will ‘bounce back’ against United next Sunday at White Hart Lane.
"We will talk and bounce back on Sunday against Manchester United. It is a good thing we play Manchester United next [in the league]. We play at home. I know we have the support of our crowd and we can win that game on Sunday," said the Belgian.
In transfer news, the Mail claims United are ‘watching mini Messi’ Dundee United teenager Ryan Gauld, as well as Liverpool.
In other news, United legend Bill Foulkes has died aged 81. The Red Devils’ former defender survived the Munich air disaster and went on to play 688 times for the club, a figure only surpassed by Ryan Giggs, Bobby Charlton and Paul Scholes.
Sir Alex Ferguson led the tributes to the United legend.
“I was very sad to hear the news. Bobby and I were talking about Bill yesterday on the way down to Cardiff. He was a really nice man and a great servant to the club, too,” the former manager stated.
“The story of his life was absolutely incredible and he’s assured of his place in our history by his appearances and by the way he performed, particularly in the aftermath of the Munich air disaster.”
“Having gone through that, how he and Harry Gregg managed to perform a couple of weeks later, leading those young lads out against Sheffield Wednesday – and winning the game - was absolutely incredible. He was an exceptional man,” he added.
