Former Chief of Referees criticizes Alejandro Garnacho’s ‘simulation’ film in Everton vs Manchester United match.

Keith Hackett has supported the criticism of Alejandro Garnacho for engaging in “simulation” during the victory against Everton at Old Trafford.

The former Premier League referee and previous head of the PGMOL expressed agreement on Twitter on 10 March, acknowledging that a supporter of Everton was correct in pointing out the inappropriate conduct of the Argentine.

The young player from Manchester United was fouled on two occasions, resulting in penalties during the 2-0 victory at home the previous day. However, despite their team’s domination, Sean Dyche’s side failed to capitalize on their advantage and made mistakes in defense, despite the commendable performance of Jordan Pickford in goal.

Initially, he was tripped by James Tarkowski’s sluggish following leg after 10 minutes and fell to the ground in what seemed to be pain. However, he quickly realized that he had earned a penalty kick, so he promptly got up and rejoiced towards the home crowd.

Hackett concurred: “Your observations are accurate and precise.” In the late 1980s and 1990s, there was an increase in acts of simulation.

Alejandro Garnacho found culpable of ‘simulation’ as Everton suffer defeat at Old Trafford
The 19-year-old was the main danger for a lackluster United team who may consider themselves fortunate to have escaped with a victory against Sean Dyche’s team, who once again failed to capitalize on their chances.
