Former Toon Star 'Punched And Headbutted!'

Last updated : 14 February 2014 By Footy Mad - Editor

Former Newcastle striker Craig Bellamy is currently serving a three-match ban after accepting a charge of violent conduct following a challenge on Jonathan de Guzman that was initially missed by the match officials.

The decision to charge Bellamy came after a three-man panel of former elite referees reviewed the incident and agreed unanimously it was a sending-off offence.

Cardiff manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was left perplexed, claiming De Guzman over-reacted, further pointing out Angel Rangel went unpunished for a kick on Wilfried Zaha.

The mud-slinging has continued with Monk's accusations regarding Kim, and telling Solskjaer to keep his own house in order first.

Garry Monk: "I saw Ole answering a question that my man Jon de Guzman made a meal of it.

"When you receive an elbow in the back of the head and you go down normally, I don't see how that's an over-reaction.

"I would have more concerns about the 35th minute corner for them when one of my players, Wayne Routledge, gets headbutted and punched in the face by Kim.

"If anything I would be more concerned about something like that than saying one of my players was play-acting.

"If you look at Wayne, when he gets headbutted and punched in the face, he stays on his feet. He doesn't make a meal of it.

"So I think Ole needs to look at his own players before he starts looking at mine."
