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.”
