“I used to be going to shake fingers. It is almost definitely my fault. I had instructed them to not press, I had instructed them to not foul. The youngsters are younger guys, they wish to play exhausting. They had been upset, pissed off … however you have to deal with it proper.”

The development that brought about the battle used to be Gordon stealing the ball from De Sousa within the remaining seconds of a blowout, which ended in De Sousa getting again on protection, making the proper play, after which tempers flaring right away.
