Sunderland midfielder Gardner blasts Chelsea's Ba after booking

Sunderland midfielder Craig Gardner has slammed Chelsea striker Demba Ba.

The midfielder was booked for bringing down the former Newcastle player during the Blues’ 2-1 win on Sunday and he will now serve a two‑match ban as it was his 10th caution of the season.

It was a heavy challenge by Gardner but he claimed: “It was not a yellow card. It was a fair tackle. He has just rolled around and forced the booking.”
