FA quiz Hughes over Bellamy comments

BY foxsports • December 15, 2009

Manchester City boss Mark Hughes has been asked by the FA to explain his comments after Craig Bellamy's dismissal in the draw at Bolton.

Bellamy collected two yellow cards in the second half of the 3-3 draw, the first for dissent and the second for a supposed dive, although replays suggested the City striker was fouled.

Hughes later claimed that referee Mark Clattenburg had joked that he did not like the Welshman at half-time.

"I don't appreciate when the referees coming out for the second half start making comment about who they do or do not like in my team," Hughes said.

"They might be having a laugh and a joke. I have to be careful here as we are talking about integrity."

Hughes has until December 22 to respond to the FA's letter regarding his comments about Bellamy's dismissal.
