Aston Villa Manager, Tim Sherwood Blasts Referee, Says His Team Were Robbed


Aston Villa Manager, Tim Sherwood was left enraged after Aston Villa wasted a host of chances and were held to a 2-2 draw at home to Sunderland on Saturday, declaring his side were “robbed”.

The Black Cats opened the scoring after just eight minutes following Yann M’Vila’s finely taken free-kick but Villa were ahead by half-time thanks to a Scott Sinclair brace.

Jeremain Lens’ netted the decisive equaliser following the interval and following a flurry of late chances for the hosts, manager Sherwood was angry at his team’s inability to turn their superiority into three points in the Premier League clash.

“Anyone who watched that game knows that we should have won,” the former Spurs boss told BBC Sport.


“We had 22 shots, the keeper has pulled off a ‘worldy’ save and we should have had a penalty. We have been robbed.”

“I think it’s a penalty otherwise he just rolls it in the net,” he added. “Why would he go down?

“He’s clean through. I have asked Carles in there [the Villa dressing room] and he said there was contact. I think Younes tries to pull out and stops.

“If there is contact I think you’re entitled to go to ground. We would then have perhaps got what we deserved.”
