Spurs furious over Zokora dismissal

Tottenham fullback Pascal Chimbonda has defended Didier Zokora after his dismissal in Tuesday's Carling Cup victory at Manchester City.

Victory at Eastlands put Spurs into the semi-finals - but they were furious at Zokora's red card for a tackle on Elano.

"I don't think the referee made a good decision. Didier is not a dirty player," said Chimbonda.

Spurs have appealed and will find out tomorrow if the Football Association will overturn Steve Bennett's decision.

"Tottenham have submitted a claim for wrongful dismissal in relation to the sending-off of Didier Zokora for serious foul play against Manchester City in last night's Carling Cup tie," confirmed a statement from the FA.
