Arnold fumes over FFA citation

  • Arnold fumes over FFA citation

Sydney FC coach Graham Arnold says his use of the word of the word "criminal" to describe last weekend's loss to Adelaide was taken out of context, as the club fights to clear him of possible charges.

The Sky Blues have written to Football Federation Australia to dispute Arnold's citation this week over his perceived criticism during Friday's post-match press conference of a last-minute penalty that saw them go down 2-1 at Coopers Stadium.

Arnold faces a hefty fine or even a touchline ban.

"I think it's wrong to be cited when people assume what I said ... never in my mind did I go in there and criticise anyone, so I'm just disappointed that you can be publicly bashed and cited on someone assuming that you've said certain words in certain ways," Arnold told reporters on Thursday.
