Carlo Ancelotti details what he said to referee just before receiving red card

Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti has lifted the lid on what he said to the referee to earn a red card in Everton's 1-1 draw with Manchester United .

Dominic Calvert-Lewin looked to have won it for the hosts in stoppage time and earned the Toffees a valuable three points as they make a late surge for a European spot.

However, Gylfi Sigurdsson was found to be offside and obstructing David de Gea's view in the build-up by VAR and the goal was ruled out.

Ancelotti was visibly furious as he confronted Chris Kavanagh after the final whistle and he was soon shown a red card for the comments he made.

The Italian has now detailed what he said to Kavanagh. "I asked for an explanation [on the VAR call] after the game," he said.

"There was a misunderstanding and I was sent off. I spoke to the referee after the game, but that will remain private. I didn't disrespect him. We will see."

Regarding the VAR call, he added: "The decision was difficult. From our side we say Gylfi [Sigurdsson] didn't affect the vision of the goalkeeper and they decided differently.

"Sometimes it is right sometimes it is wrong. But the performance gives us more confidence that we can compete with these teams.
