Wigan Athletic midfielder James McCarthy wants to put the incident involving Wayne Rooney behind him.
Rooney elbowed McCarthy during Manchester United’s 4-0 rout of the Latics last weekend but avoided any punishment from the Football Association because referee Mark Clattenburg awarded a free-kick for the offence despite not showing Rooney a card.
Wigan chairman Dave Whelan blasted the decision not to punish the England international, claiming it was a case of “one set of rules for one club and another for the rest”.
But McCarthy is keen to move on from the incident and concentrate on helping the Latics climb out of the Premier League’s relegation zone.
He told The Sun: “The manager Roberto Martinez told me not to worry, keep working hard and hopefully we can stay in the league.
“It looks a lot worse on the telly but these things happen in football. You just have to dust yourself down and get on with it.”
