'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Hutton Has Nothing To Apologise For

Shane Long has admitted that he doesn't believe Aston Villa's Alan Hutton has anything to apologise for with his spell out injured and he doesn't believe the tackle was malicious.

With plenty of media outlet's taking the line that Villa nor Hutton have apologised for the incident (which I'm sure is wrong actually as I remember reading something from their manager at the very least), Shane Long said sensibly - even if many fans disagree - to wba.co.uk.

'There's nothing for him to apologise for, I'm sure he never meant to crack a bone in my leg. We move on, it could've been a lot worse.'

Takes a big man to brush that aside in my opinion.

in tackles like these, only the man who made them really know whether they were intentioned to "do" the player and though I dont believe that Hutton would have deliberately set out to harm Long, it was a very poor challenge and one that you would ideally not want to see in the game today.

I think you have to try and be relaxed somewhat about it as long as they aren't a regular occurrence from the same player. From his time at Spurs he doesn't strike me as malicious either, but it was certainly excessive shall we say. Just impressed moreso with Long's outlook on it, as we've seen players in the past really ham it up in the press.
