Wolves chairman Steve Morgan has branded the tackle that broke Adlene Guedioura’s leg by Aston Villa’s Steve Sidwell as vicious.
Morgan decided to hit back at the media, following their unfair portrayal of Wolves in recent weeks.
While we are branded as ‘dirty` and a ‘disgrace to the Premier League’ receiving a £75,000 fine in the process, Sidwell’s tackle apparently wasn’t even shown on BBC’s Match Of The Day programme, the same TV show that gave our supposed ill treatment of Joey Barton so much coverage.
“Anyone who has watched Wolves over the years and any Mick McCarthy team knows we are competitive but we`re not a dirty team at all and it hurts me to see us labelled as one,” said Morgan to the Express & Star.
He continued: “One of our lads had his leg broken on Sunday in what I thought was a vicious tackle and absolutely nothing has been said about it in the press.
“When the same thing happened at Fulham for what was a perfectly fair tackle by Karl Henry, he won the ball and yet Karl was absolutely pilloried for it.
“It`s really unfair the way we`ve been singled out.”
Vital Wolves Comment; While I agree with Morgan on the vast majority of his points, I will have to argue against branding Sidwell’s tackle as ‘vicious’.
For me, it was more reckless than vicious, but then I wasn’t on the receiving end!
