Cardiff City manager Dave Jones has been charged with ‘bringing the game into disrepute’ following comments made after Cardiff’s 1-0 win over Leeds when 2 Cardiff City players were dismissed.

Jones criticised the performance of referee Mark Clattenberg:

‘The red and yellow cards handed out today were in the main for nothing challenges.’

‘At one stage I didn’t know how many players I would end up with, but my players were magnificent.

‘If you are not good enough for the Premiership then you shouldn’t referee in the Championship.’


‘I hope he never refs us again because he tried everything in his power to give Leeds a helping hand,’


The two red cards and penalty incident all upset Jones but his comments have been picked up by the FAW and Jones will now face a disciplinary hearing and probable touchline ban.
