Slav shows the art of diplomacy

past and presentSlaven Bilic again demonstrated perfectly the art of diplomacy in referee handling after another horrible sending off.

Carefully watching his tongue the Irons boss declared: “It is never a red card, for me personally is not even a yellow card. In England maybe not even a foul it was a 50/50 challenge.

“We have every right to be very disappointed with the decision because anybody who has anything to do with football in their life knows it is very easy to judge that decision.

“We should be disappointed. “We are going to bounce back and fight till the end to finish high and try to win the cup.”
