I don't thank any fair minded football supporter can really endorse what Johan Elmander acted out in the recent World Cup Quailifer, in feining a head butt from Stoke's Arnautovic, getting the player red carded. In what could be termed a type of apology Elmander said the following:
"I am an advocate of
fair play and (what) happened right there are things that happen in a game when
you're inside it... that is the end of the game and you're tired and
stuff. That's what happens.
"I'm not proud of what I did, but now it is so."
It remains to be seen if Arnautovic makes a successful appeal - and Elmander is punished for over-reacting.
Not that much of an apology really , it is a sure bet he will receive a very warm welcome from Stoke's following and remains to be seen how City's own following react to himE
