Wellens: I Didn't Spit In Britton's Face

Wellens: I Didn't Spit In Britton's Face

Doncaster's Richie Wellens has responded to Leon Britton's accusations that he spat in his face.

The Rovers midfielder denied the claims and told their Official Site:

'I am disappointed that Leon Britton has come out in the newspapers and on the web with the accusation that I spat in his face, which he quite clearly later says was not a face to face spit.

He also called me a coward, which I found distasteful; as in 10 years and over 400 games I have never been called that.

I did not spit in his face, but as usual I was clearing my throat and did not aim anything his way.

No one, including their manager, can say they saw me spit in his face and all there had been was the usual pushing and shoving, which usually stays on the field.

Everyone should have been coming off the field and talking about the good football that Swansea had played to win the game but instead, because of the 'bigging' up of the situation by him, all the talk was about something that did not happen. That for me was one of the most disappointing parts of it all.

The only thing I regret was arguing with their manager Roberto Martinez as I came off when I got the red card. I should have ignored everything and walked straight off and for that I apologise'

Well somebody's lying here, he's obviously going to hide it if he did spit at Britton. Britton's not the type to come out and lie about something like this.
