Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has responded to Garry Monk's claims

Comments (4)

CARDIFF City boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insists Wayne Routledge was not butted or punched by Kim Bo-Kyung in last week’s derby.

New Swansea head coach Garry Monk said the midfielder was lucky to avoid action by the referee after the incident, which took place in the first half of Swansea’s 3-0 win.

Monk made his claim after Solskjaer criticised Jonathan de Guzman’s reaction to being hit by Craig Bellamy, who subsequently received a three-match ban.

“I am not aware of that incident,” said Solskjaer. “I would like to forget that game. We got no points and a three-match suspension for Craig, who did nothing.

“I cannot comment on what he said, but I did see someone (Angel Rangel) kick Wilfried Zaha off the ball.

“But this rivalry between Cardiff and Swansea and us being in the Premier League is good for us.

“I think we push them and they push us so let’s not make it like we are proper enemies and accuse someone of something that has not happened.”

    There must be video evidence of these incidents. Sky cameras miss nothing that happens on the pitch or in the tunnel.

    I think that we should change our away kit to something a bit brighter. In the 1964 cup run we played in tangerine and it was briliant on dark winter days. And the current kit has too much blue in it !

    What a deluded little man. Obviously so deep in Vicent Tan's pocket he's going to play the role of lap dog. Craig Bellamy did nothing, its all there on video OLE. http://tinyurl.com/pnulj3j (fast forward to 25 seconds) Craig Bellamy clearly runs up behind him and punches him in the ear. FACT. He has also done it to a FAN before, aswell. http://tinyurl.com/pcprf4w So now who are you going to believe? The deluded manager whose been proven wrong by video footage (you can all see for yoursel) and the FA, or the guy just lied to you about what craig bellamy did not do? Honestly, you can't make up the amount of **** that comes out of that club.
