Club Brugge's Simon Deli Sent Off For Hilarious Handball Against Manchester United

Club Brugge's Simon Deli was shown a straight red card against Manchester United after hilariously stopping Daniel James' strike with his hand.

Deli received a red card in the 22nd minute following his blatant handball to stop James' effort from hitting the target.

As the Welshman unleashed a curling right-footed strike towards the goal, Deli stuck his hand out and saved the ball.

Bruno Fernandes eventually converted the penalty after a bizarre VAR review which saw the match referee watch the handball incident on the pitch side monitor.

Needless to say, the whole situation sent social media into overdrive.

"Dreadful refereeing looking at it that many times. It's embarrassing," one social media user wrote.

A second tweeted: "Can't understand why the ref had to watch the handball 10 times on the VAR monitor before the original decision of red card was upheld."

A third added: "Best handball I've seen for a bloody long time!!!"
