Boss says no issue with Cheltenham staff or players after brief coming together at end of Saturday's game.
Crewe Alexandra boss David Artell has said that the incident at the end of Saturday’s game has been resolved and there was no issue between the staff of both clubs following our FA Cup defeat at the Jonny Rocks Stadium. Crewe lost the game 2-1 after extra time and emotions spilled over as the players made their way down the tunnel at the final whistle.
Artell says that as far as he is concerned the incident is ‘done and dusted’ after talking to his captain, Perry Ng.
The boss explained to the club’s official website: “I’ve seen the incident again and I don’t think either party will be happy with their actions at the end of the game. Perry has spat water on the floor after taking a drink and their member of staff has taken exception to that.
“He had been hurling abuse at him as he made his way of the pitch before it died down pretty quickly. I don’t think either of them would be impressed by their actions and I have spoken to Perry and dealt with it internally.
“It was a bit of a storm in a tea cup and they both walked away from it pretty quickly. We went for a drink with their staff afterwards and there was no issue from either club. We get on well with Michael (Duff) and his staff. It is all done and dusted from our point of view and it was over as quickly as it started.”
