Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag has disagreed with Pep Guardiola as he insisted that Marcus Rashford didn’t interfere in play whilst in an offside position.
Man United came from a second half goal from Jack Grealish to beat Manchester City 2-1 at Old Trafford to extend their winning run at home to 10 matches.
Casemiro played a defence-splitting pass to put Rashford through to City’s box but the England international knew he was in an offside position, so he did not make any contact on the ball, leaving Bruno Fernandes, who reacted quickly from an onside position, to finish the job off.
Pep Guardiola believes the goal should have been ruled out for an offside because he felt Rashford’s movement obstructed his goalkeepers and defenders.
“Rashford was offside, he distracted our keeper and defenders,” Guardiola told BT Sport.
On complaints about Bruno Fernandes’ equaliser, Ten Hag said: “I can see that from the other side but when you follow the rules, he wasn’t interfering. It was a goal. Bruno came from the back.”
