Aston Villa manager David Beckham
will be forced to serve a one match touchline ban after raging at referee Jon Moss
for his decision not to hand his side a penalty in the 0-1 loss against Arsenal.
In the post-match press conference, Beckham flew into a rage and verbally attacked Moss for the controversial decision.
"It was a definite penalty," Beckham told assembled journalists. "I still have no explanation to why it was not given. Will (Hughes) was pushed onto the ground. There was contact. Why wasn't it given? I don't know. I am not the ref, but in my opinion that was a poor decision that should have been revised."
He added, "Sometimes referees do not get the attention they crave and at times when they don't, they will attempt to make some horrible decision to get this. It is just unfortunate for us we were on the receiving end of it today.
"I'd have to tell the lads to be careful next time we are refereed by this Jon Moss guy. One wrong move and we are finished. There will be some stupid decision against us if we don't be careful, I'll tell you that."
