Tottenham defender Bassong furious with Arsenal ace Nasri over penalty

Tottenham defender Sebastien Bassong was furious with Arsenal ace Samir Nasri after last night's Carling Cup defeat.

Bassong accused Nasri of cheating for the first of his two penalties.

He raged: "He went down too easily, I didn't think it was a penalty.

"He told me afterwards that I barely touched him.

"It leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I touched Nasri's chest but I did not grab him. I have seen the video and from my point of view it was not a penalty."

But Bassong had no complaints about the second penalty. He added: "I think the one Steve gave away was a penalty. After the third the game was nearly over. Because of the penalties we could not get back in the game."
