Why should they apologise ?
it's a red card and if it wasn't they don't have to apologise it's not their fault !!

I think it's classy of the players to do that and as footballers I'm sure they understand it was a poor red card.

No one wants to see overhead kicks being given as automatic red cards for dangerous play. It was a yellow at most and I'm glad that the Madrid players were humble enough to acknowledge this.

I'm so tired of the whiny United players and fans. Get over it! It was a harsh red card sure, but it's not like there was absolutely nothing to warrant a red.

Also, it was 1-0 United at that point. Step up and hold for 30 minutes. United lost not because of this red card, but because a) they collapsed b) over the two games, they missed like 5-6 easy goals.

utd wouldn't have won it anyway.

It was a red card, if you watch it again, nani sees him coming and still puts his leg up.
