Sorensen blasts Hutton

Thomas Sorensen has criticised Alan Hutton after Sunday's match which left the Danish keeper requiring 12 stitches to the head injury.

The injury around his eye could have been far worse and meant that Steve Simonsen had to deputise for the remainder of the second half after he colliding with Hutton, but Sorensen is certain that it could have been avoided. He told the Sentinel: 'We are at a stage where it is not funny any more. He could have avoided hitting me. He had no chance to reach the ball, but he still threw himself into it, leading with his studs.

'The doctor has done a very good job so my face is not totally destroyed. But it was a millimetre off me losing my sight, so I am relieved. I can just look up to the heavens and say 'thank you'.'

Hutton was a tad late, but was entitled to go for the ball IMO, the injury to sorensen wasnt help by his own player whacking him in the back of the head a split second after, however I hope he didnt have to much of a headache, Im sure the 3 points helped..

wasn't the damage done by his own defender following through?

Not being funny but Sorensen needs to stop crying like a baby and be a man. I find the phrase "it's not funny anymore" somewhat confusing.. In the old days keepers used to get clobbered left, right and centre. Now, no-one can go near a keeper for fear of being sent off. On the other hand, I have lost count of the amount of times a keepers mistimed punch, or knees etc have caught an opponent - that includes Sorensen. So, how can he complain that "its not funny anymore"given that it certainly wasn't funny 20-30 yrs ago for keepers or players as the rules were far more "manly". Now the game is played by a bunch of wuss' who moan whenever someone makes an attempt to win the ball... Unbelievable.
The Tailor
Whilst I agree wholeheartedly with The Tailor's comments about the modern game, I still find Sorensen's words disturbing when he says: "He had no chance to reach the ball, but he still threw himself into it, leading with his studs." That sopunds more like a deliberate assault than a legitimate challenge. If what Sorensen says is true then he has every right to be aggrieved in this case. Leading with the studs is to my mind totally against the spirit of the game and far more serious than tackling from behind, body checks and so on, where both players share the risk.
