Nordsjaelland boss Hjulmand: UEFA censored me!

Nordsjaelland boss Kasper Hjulmand accused UEFA of censoring him ahead of tonight's Champions League clash at Chelsea.

Nordsjaelland have already caused one upset in Group E by drawing with Juventus and they threatened another against Shakhtar Donetsk two weeks ago before Luiz Adriano scored a goal when one of his team-mates attempted to return possession to the Danes following an injury.

Adriano was handed a one-match ban by UEFA for his lack of sportsmanship, but Hjulmand hit out at European football's governing body tonight for the way they had handled the fallout.

Branding the 'Respect' campaign a "facade", he said: "I have to say that I'm disappointed with UEFA.

"After the match, everything that I said at the press conference was cut out of UEFA's homepage. You couldn't even read that it was a controversial goal. The goal wasn't even on the website.

"If this had happened to this club [Chelsea] or to Manchester United, what would have happened?

"I think everyone knows it would be a different story."
