Cardiff defender Joe Bennett publicly apologises for horror tackle on Leroy Sané

Cardiff City defender Joe Bennett has publicly apologised on Twitter for a potential leg-breaking challenge on Leroy Sané during Manchester City’s 2-0 win over Cardiff City in the FA Cup fifth round.

Bennett slid in with his studs up and could easily have caused serious damage to Sané, who will miss up to a month with an ankle injury suffered during the incident.

Bennett, who was later sent off for another nasty challenge, this time on teenager Brahim Diaz, tweeted:

Neil Warnock moved to defend his player after the match, suggesting dangerous tackles were part and parcel in English football.
