And quite right too

Cardiff City defender Joe Bennett has taken to social media to apologise for his awful tackle on Leroy Sane.

Sane is set to be out for “maybe two or three weeks, maybe a month” according to Pep Guardiola after a terrible challenge that forced the German off.

Bennett said he completely “mistimed” his tackle and he hopes Sane’s injury is not too serious.

Bennett was sent off in the second half after a foul on Brahim Diaz, but he really should have gone for his dangerous challenge on Sane.

Sane did look to have escaped serious injury and let’s hope he’s OK and will be back in action soon.
