MANCHESTER UNITED star Omari Forson was substituted after just 36 minutes in last night’s Las Vegas clash against Borussia Dortmund.
The Red Devils ended their US tour with a game against the Bundesliga giants.
19-year-old Forson was part of a largely second team fielded by coach Erik ten Hag in the first half.
He started the game well before experiencing a moment of oblivion.
The winger tried to tackle Karim Adeyemi before attacking Julian Ryerson.
Defender Ryerson and forward Adeyemi both reacted angrily – Forson going neck and neck with the latter.
Forson also swung an arm, so both he and Adeyemi received a yellow card after the incident.
Ten Hag was furious on the sidelines and immediately sent Antony to replace Forson.
The youngster was visibly disappointed when he left the pitch and was comforted by veteran coaches Christian Eriksen and Scott McTominay.
Ten Hag, 53, was chatting at length with Forson as he reached the sidelines.
And after the game, the Dutchman warned: “If there is a VAR, he will be sent off.”
“He’s made a good game and the opponents are angry with him, so that’s a learning curve, but don’t take matters into your own hands.”
“You can’t be the referee, you have to play football, you have to beat your opponent, you have to score and that’s the best way to react.”
United took the lead in the 24th minute thanks to a Diogo Dalot strike, but were thwarted by a brace from Donyell Malen just before half-time.
Forson’s substitute Antony equalized in the 52nd minute before Youssoufa Moukoko scored Dortmund’s winner in the 71st minute.
After his team’s 3-2 defeat, Ten Hag scolded: “There are no excuses.”
“We definitely have to perform and then you have to be merciless and win games because we are Man United and the fans expect us to win.”
“I said to the team, ‘I think it was a good Tour but you want to finish with a good performance and you only see 60 minutes where I was happy with the goals we conceded but not with them because they were really bad.”
