West Ham United’s Diafra Sakho could still be given a suspension if the English FA finds him guilty of head-butting Luke Shaw, an incident that was missed by referee Lee Mason, Daily Star reports.
The Manchester United left-back refused to make a comment regarding the issue, but sources at the club claim that the 19-year-old was on the receiving end of a head-butt.
It was said that he voiced his complaint at the assistant referee, but since no immediate actions were taken, video footage could be reviewed to see if a later punishment would be given to Sakho.
He however did mention that he believes the sending off of captain Wayne Rooney was down to bad luck as he continues to give it his all.
“We have actually had a lot of bad luck, especially with Wazza’s red card as I would say there was a handball before that but the referee didn’t stop play.
“Earlier in the game, Sakho did the same to me. But I just focus on winning games and I’ll keep doing that.”
The England international only made his competitive debut at the weekend after Louis van Gaal deemed him not to be fit enough, giving him extra training to prepare him for the campaign.
“Of course, he was right to say that. We had a discussion in pre-season and the plan for me was to get my fitness up.
“It worked, I think, apart from the injury. It was a bit of setback but I’ve worked hard in the last weeks and had some talks.
“He’s been a great inspiration to me and hopefully I can carry that on.”
