Cardiff skipper Turner happy with non-sending off of Man Utd’s Rooney

Cardiff City captain Ben Turner was fine with the decision of referee Neil Swarbrick not to send Wayne Rooney off on Sunday.

The Manchester United forward appeared to kick out at Jordon Mutch early in the eventual 2-2 draw at the Cardiff City Stadium but Turner felt there was not much in the incident and was happy to see the game go on as normal.

"I do think he kicked out from where I was, but I think the way game's going, I didn't want him sent off really because it's becoming less and less of a physical game and I think we need to keep some of that in the game for the enjoyment of the fans," he told Sky Sports 1.

"I think it's nice to have a bit of that going on."
