Sorry Sanchez Admits Hleb Error

Sorry Sanchez Admits Hleb Error

After seeing his team go down to two late goals on the opening day of the season, Fulham manager Lawrie Sanchez slammed Arsenal as divers.

The claims came after Alex Hleb was brought down in the box in the first half before stand-in 'keeper Tony Warner brought down striker Robin Van Persie.

Both clear penalties, neither given.

Sanchez's comments led to several papers slamming Arsenal.

Having reviewed the matter it seems the Fulham manager knows he was wrong. Speaking to Sky Sports News Lawrie said: 'I've got to hold my hands up and say I was wrong to a certain extent.

'The incident regarding Hleb was probably a good shout for a penalty.

'My initial instinct as a manager is always to protect my own players so, without seeing the incident, I spoke perhaps a bit too rashly.

'That said, the one for the penalty I've seen them given and I've seen them not given.

'But I was speaking too much with adrenaline. Sometimes you shoot from the hip when you should wait a little bit longer.'

It takes a big man to say sorry so in my opinion apology accepted and you have gone up 10 points in my estimation. Well Done.

Perhaps some of us also shot from the hip in lashing back at him - I'll still call him "Dirty Sanchez" though cause it makes me giggle.
