Fergie: Carragher tackle ""disgraceful""

March 13, 2011 - 0:0

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has branded Jamie Carragher's tackle on Nani during last week's 3-1 defeat at Liverpool ""disgraceful"".

Nani left the pitch on a stretcher and could be sidelined for up to three weeks after requiring stitches to repair a deep leg wound.
Ferguson did not immediately comment on the first-half incident at Anfield, for which Carragher was only booked, due to a self-imposed media blackout, but has now broken his silence.
""It was a disgraceful tackle, we know that, but you move on,"" said Ferguson. ""It is difficult to say exactly when he will be ready to return but we won't get him back for Bolton next Saturday.""
""We've managed to stitch it, which is great news. What we're guarding against, of course, is infection,"" Ferguson added.
""The swelling has gone down a great deal, which is good news - but to give you a date for when he is coming back is very difficult to say.
