Hughes draws a line under row with Arsenal boss Wenger

Manchester City boss Mark Hughes is keen to draw a line under his touchline spat with Arsene Wenger. Hughes accused the Arsenal boss of being ungracious after Manchester City's Carling Cup win at Eastlands on Wednesday, when Wenger snubbed the traditional post-match handshake and disappeared down the tunnel.

It has been claimed that Wenger took offence at Hughes swearing in his direction earlier in the game.

However, Hughes is not keen to re-open the debate and feels it is time for everyone to move on.

"We keep revisiting things that have already occurred," he said.

"Everybody has had their say on what happened.

"I have my view, as I tried to articulate after the game. I am sure Arsene has his view on it as well.

"But that is between myself and Arsene, not anybody else.

"It is not something I am not looking to dwell on. It is past, why revisit it? We are grown men, we just get on with it.

"From my point of view the issue is over."
