Cole Tackle Was Shocking Says Fergie

Sir Alex Ferguson was left feeling angry over the tackle that Ashley Cole put in on Javier Hernandez on Sunday afternoon and believes he should have been shown a red card for the incident. Fergie branded the tackle as "shocking", and to make matters worse, the referee booked Cole but failed to award United a penalty. Hernandez was replaced by Dimitar Berbatov for the last quarter of the match that Ferguson's side won 3-1. The United boss told MUTV: "It was a shocking tackle. "The referee booked him, so I don't understand why he hasn't given a penalty. "Ashley Cole is very reckless at times. He is committed of course but being committed you can sometimes go over the edge a bit. "That was an example of that."
