Manchester City boss Mark Hughes has revealed he has been asked to explain his comments regarding Craig Bellamy’s red card against Bolton Wanderers.
Bellamy was sent off during City’s 3-3 draw at the Reebok Stadium on Saturday after picking up a second yellow card for simulation.
Television replays suggested there was contact from Robinson, causing Bellamy to lose his balance, and Hughes was unhappy with referee Mark Clattenburg after the match.
Hughes described the decision to dismiss Bellamy as ‘laughable’ and ‘ridiculous’, and he has now been asked by the Football Association to explain those remarks.
“What I said at the time, I stand by that,” said Hughes told Sky Sports News.
“By all accounts, the FA have sent a letter through asking for my version of events, so really I can’t discuss it any further.
“My statements are on record from the weekend.”
