Villa manager slams Terry for tackle on Milner
Aston Villa manager Martin O’Neill has accused Chelsea’s John
Terry of making a “horrendous” tackle that could have ended the
career of James Milner, his England teammate.
O’Neill says Terry should have been sent off for a lunging
tackle that caught Milner on his lower leg just below the knee in
Saturday’s FA Cup semifinal, which Chelsea won 3-0. Instead, Terry
got a yellow card.
Describing the challenge as horrendous and “desperately poor,”
the Villa manager says Milner was “tremendously lucky that his
career was intact.” Milner was very sore but the club doctor told
him he was fortunate to escape serious injury.
