London, Nov 14(ANI): Manchester United defender Jonny Evans has followed manager Sir Alex Ferguson by having his own dig at referees, saying that the Red Devils have been getting a raw deal by referees this season.
The 21-year-old feels the reigning Premier League champions have not been getting the benefit of some 50-50 decisions in recent games.
Ferguson and a number of players have been unhappy over a host of decisions given by referee Martin Atkinson during last weekend's 1-0 defeat against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
"We're normally good with referees. You get a lot of teams who use play acting, but not many of us roll around and try to cheat. The 50-50 decisions from that have not gone our way lately and that has been a bit disheartening for a few of the lads," The Sun quoted Evans, as saying.
"Sometimes you have to beat the referee as well and that is what we have to do," he added. (ANI)
