Cardiff striker Jones explains downing tools at Stoke

Cardiff City striker Kenwyne Jones has explained downing tools at Stoke City last month.

Jones made himself unavailable for selection when the Potters took on Liverpool in the Premier League last month, losing 5-3.

He was fined two weeks' wages and his stance severed his relationship with Mark Hughes.

"Nobody from Stoke can say I was miscreant, disrespectful or even on strike as they would like to put it," he told the Western Mail.

"The main reason was for my voice to be heard because they didn't want to pay attention to me. That's all I needed.

"I didn't want to disrupt the squad, disrespect the manager or anything.

"Clubs have to come out, say what they have to and keep fans onside. I have no problem with that.

"My thing is I am happy. In the end I got heard and I am in Cardiff now."
