UEFA on Friday explained why Manchester United’s controversial penalty in their Champions League round of 16 second-leg clash with Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday night was the right decision.

The European football governing body took to their official website to release a statement detailing why referee Damir Skomina awarded the penalty during Man United’s clash with PSG.

Marcus Rashford’s spot-kick saw Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men eliminate the Ligue 1 champions from the Champions League.

United, who lost 2-0 at home in the first leg, won 3-1 on the night to progress on away goals.

With the match looking to end 2-1, referee Damir Skomina adjudged Presnel Kimpembe to have handled the ball in the area, after consulting Video Assistant Referees (VAR).

But UEFA insisted that the use of VAR and Skomina’s decision to award a penalty in the Parc des Princes, was the correct interpretation of the law.
