COLE­MAN DE­FENDS

Wales boss says Sea­mus in­jury un­for­tu­nate

New Straits Times - - Sport -

DUBLIN booked for a late chal­lenge on John O’Shea, rul­ing him out of June’s trip to Ser­bia, but his man­ager felt Ire­land’s play­ers had been no an­gels them­selves.

Asked by an Ir­ish jour­nal­ist if Bale had been lucky to avoid a sec­ond book­ing for a high foot on James McClean, Chris Cole­man said: “Do you think one or two of yours were lucky to stay on the pitch?

“Be­cause it was a lit­tle bit of both. Your boys were not com­ing off there with ha­los on their head. It was go­ing on all through the game.

“It was a typical Bri­tish game of foot­ball. There were one or two com­plaints from our boys, that your boys were a lit­tle bit late here and there.

“And some of our boys were as well. I’m not com­plain­ing. That’s foot­ball.”

Cole­man may have been ag­grieved
