(Video) RVP Throws Ball At Referee Phil Dowd, Doesn’t Get Sent Off

United man has reputation for being hot-headed.

Robin van Persie may be feeling lucky after throwing the ball at referee Phil Dowd but receiving no punishment during Manchester United’s match with Southampton.

The Dutch striker was unhappy with the amount of time Southampton were taking over a substitution and wanted to take a quick free kick, but could have been sent off for this clear and disrespectful dissent.

The Dutch striker has a reputation for being easy to wind-up but may just have to cool off if he wants to stay on the pitch for the full 90.

Should RVP have seen red?
