Cardiff City's Joe Bennett apologises for tackle on Man City winger Leroy Sane

Cardiff City defender Joe Bennett uses social media to apologise for a tackle which is expected to keep Manchester City winger Leroy Sane sidelined for a number of weeks.

Cardiff City defender Joe Bennett has apologised for the tackle which forced Manchester City winger Leroy Sane into an early withdrawal from the FA Cup tie between the two clubs.

During the first half at the Cardiff City Stadium, Sane raced clear of the home side's defence and appeared to be ready to get a shot on goal before being cynically fouled by Bennett.

The left-back's studs made strong contact with the German international's ankle and after the game, manager Pep Guardiola suggested that the attacker would face a number of weeks on the sidelines.

Bennett has acknowledged the severity of the challenge, but insists that he had not intended to make such a robust tackle on the edge of the penalty area.



Man City would eventually run out 2-0 winners in South Wales.
