Wolves manager Mick McCarthy has praised the conduct of Cesc Fabregas following Wednesday night’s defeat to Arsenal.
Fabregas was booked by referee Mark Halsey for a poor challenge on Wolves forward Stephen Ward during the Gunners’ 2-0 victory at Molineux.
The Spaniard did not complain about receiving the caution at the time and, immediately following the game, entered the hosts’ dressing room to personally apologise to Ward, earning him praise for McCarthy.
The former Republic of Ireland manager said: “I think it is brilliant. Fabregas came in and apologised and Wardy has accepted it like a man.
“I have no problems with that at all. It’s like a throwback to the old times when someone broke your nose in a challenge and then bought you a pint afterwards.
“Arsene apologised to me at the time and I really appreciate that apology. What I don’t like is people bitching about my team.”
