Carver ‘I told Jack Colback not to do anything stupid…’

7 years ago

John Carver has said that Jack Colback will have to ‘suffer the consequences’ after picking up his latest suspension.

The Newcastle midfielder will miss the home matches against Aston Villa and Manchester United after picking up a yellow card on Saturday.

Colback picked up his tenth booking of the season against Man City for throwing the ball away in the 28th minute with Newcastle already three goals down.

However, Carver says he specifically warned Colback not to do anything stupid that would lead to a suspension, the Newcastle head coach appearing to indicate the player will be facing a heavy fine for his moment of madness/frustration:

“It was stupid and I’ve told Jack that. I could understand it if it had been for a tackle but to throw the ball away…

“I’d spoken to him as well, I said to him that we can’t afford to lose you for the two home games.”

Suffer the consequences:

“Be available, don’t do anything stupid and he did…something stupid.

“So he will have to suffer the consequences.”
