Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has claimed that David Luiz’s “dying swan”-like reaction lead to Rafael’s sending off during Manchester United’s 1-0 loss to Chelsea.  Rafael became the first United player to get sent off in United’s Premier League campaign after David Luiz elbowed the Brazilian twice, before Rafael reacted by lashing out with his right leg.  Although looking in considerable pain after the tackle, Luiz was seen laughing at the feet of assistant referee Sian Massey once noticing Rafael’s sending off a few seconds later.

The indecent happened in the eighty-ninth minute of United’s 1-0 loss to Chelsea, and Ferguson has smartly accused Luiz play-acting to get Rafael dismissed, taking the spotlight off of United’s lackluster performance.
