Manchester United winger Nani has labelled Jamie Carragher’s horror tackle as ‘not football’.
The 24-year-old was left with a gash in his shin requiring stitches.
The United manager Sir Alex Ferguson at the time called the challenge ‘disgraceful’ after the Liverpool vice-captain was only booked.
The Portuguese international thought the tackle had ended his season and he believes Carragher was specifically targeting him
“It is the second time he injured me. Before he put me out of the game for two months. He always tackles like that,” he said.
“I don’t know what he was thinking but I know what he did was not football.”
“When I saw my leg for the first time, I thought my season was finished, that is why I was crying.
“Afterwards, the doctor saw my leg and said I had been lucky because it just needed stitches and I would be out for two or three weeks.”
“I don’t want protection. I just want the referees to be fair,” he added.
“If it is a red card, they have to give it. If they give the card, the next time the player doesn’t make the tackle.”
