Long: No Hutton apology required

Published Add your comment

West Brom striker Shane Long insists Aston Villa defender Alan Hutton had no need to apologise for the tackle which sidelined him for a month and caused Euro 2012 play-off heartache.

Long made a quicker than expected return to action with the Baggies and scored the winner against Bolton on Saturday when it was initially feared he would be out for up to eight weeks.

Speaking after scoring his fourth goal of the season, Long said: "I didn't receive any apology over the tackle (from Hutton). They (Aston Villa) obviously thought he'd done nothing wrong. There's nothing for him to apologise for."
