Football enthusiasts stated that the Slovenian referee must be held responsible for the Red Devils’ elimination from the competition

Referee Slavko Vincic is allegedly the reason why Manchester United have crashed out of the 2021-22 Uefa Champions League, according to football fans.

Having settled for a 1-1 draw at Atletico Madrid in the first leg, the Red Devils needed a win at Old Trafford to progress to the quarter-finals.

However, the La Liga giants had other ideas as they picked up a 1-0 win, courtesy of Renan Lodi’s first-half strike after he was teed up by Antoine Griezmann.

With Ralf Rangnick’s men now out of the competition, football fans went on social media to express their bitterness in the way the Slovenian referee handled the keenly-contested fixture.

Others did not buy into this sentiment insisting United planned their own downfall as they failed to convert begging opportunities.

Harry Maguire’s inclusion in the Red Devils’ line-up had sparked contrasting comments from fans. Even after a decent outing against Diego Simeone’s side, the 29-year-old was not spared.

Who do you think is responsible for Manchester United’s unceremonious exit?  Let us know in the comments.
