CONTE ACCUSES MANCHESTER UNITED OF TARGETING HAZARD

Antonio Conte accused Manchester United of targeting Eden Hazard after two fouls on the Belgian prompted Ander Herrera’s dismissal in the Blues’ FA Cup win.

Herrera bodychecked Hazard to earn his first caution before a late trip on the same player left United with a numerical deficit in just the 35th minute.

“I think that Hazard started the game and he couldn’t play football,” Conte told the BBC. “All the people can look at this and then judge the situation.”

Conte added in his news conference: “When you play against players with great talent, sometimes you try to intimidate them and referees must protect these players because they could go out with a bad injury.”
