COPENHAGEN’S furious boss reckons Alejandro Garnacho should have been sent off last night.
That’s after the Manchester United star appeared to scuff the penalty spot before Andre Onana’s last-gasp save.
The Red Devils scraped a 1-0 win over their Danish opponents in Tuesday’s Champions League clash at Old Trafford.
Harry Maguire popped up with a goal in the 72nd minute as United struggled for opportunities.
But after dropping points against Bayern Munich and Galatasaray, the hosts looked to have slipped up again when they conceded a penalty right at the death.
Scott McTominay’s high foot gave Copenhagen the chance to equalise with the final kick of the game.
But Andre Onana was the hero as he finally came good with a mighty save.
The penalty saga rumbled on after the final whistle though, with Copenhagen furious over Garnacho’s behaviour.
Pictures showed the Argentina international appearing to scuff the penalty spot moments before Onana’s save.
And angry Dane boss Jacob Neestrup insisted Garnacho should have been given a straight red for his behaviour.

The manager said: “It is up to referees and associations to set limits.
“All you have to do is give a red card for something like that, then people stop doing it.”
Copenhagen player Rasmus Falk added: “It’s a bad style.”
But ex-Southampton winger Mo Elyounoussi reckoned Garnacho’s scuff didn’t affect the outcome too much.
He said: “I didn’t get it right then and there.
“I don’t know how much that affected the penalty. Jordan still got a good penalty kick but it was a good save.
“It’s cynicism, it’s part of top football, you really just have to learn more from it.”
