Cardiff City Player Branded a 'Muppet'
Darren Purse's late red card for Cardiff City against Burnley on the weekend looks set to rule him out of the FA Cup final against Portsmouth and won him few friends in Lancashire over the weekend.
Following the challenge, Andrew Cole raceed down the tunnel to confront Purse, followed by substitutes, coaches and the police. Cole later revealed he had a chunk taken from his leg by the tackle and required numerous stitches.
Nothing happened in the tunnel, but I did go after Purse,"
"It was one of the worst tackles I have had in my career. I have played the game at the highest level for 18 years and some muppet tries to challenge me like that. He can`t play anyway."
"If I only play two games next season I hope it is Cardiff home and away."
Cole was also furious with Cardiff City manager Dave Jones after claims that Cole's reaction got Purse sent off.
