De Jong hasn't said sorry - Agent

October 10, 2010

De Jong's challenge on Ben Arfa in City's 2-1 Premier League victory over the Magpies on October 3 broke the Frenchman's leg in two places. The tough-tackling Holland international has been roundly criticised following the incident, but ex-QPR striker Simon Stainrod, who advises Ben Arfa, has told the Daily Star Sunday that no there has been "no contact" between the players. "De Jong hasn't been in touch at all," complained Stainrod. "Brian Marwood, who is a top-class professional person, sent a note from Manchester City saying everyone wished him a speedy recovery and sent a gift - but that's it. "A visit from De Jong wasn't put to him. Brian wanted to visit but Hatem was on morphine at the time. "The facts of the matter are he hasn't been in touch and he hasn't apologised. Brian Marwood has been in touch, but not de Jong."
