Cherries: Jalal staying quiet over row

15 February 2010 07:00
GOALKEEPER Shwan Jalal was keen to play down his very public outburst which followed Cherries' defeat at Dagenham & Redbridge on Saturday.[LNB] Jalal, who had performed heroics to keep Cherries in contention, was visibly fuming as he left the pitch alongside assistant boss Jason Tindall.[LNB] He angrily pointed his finger in the direction of Tindall and appeared to be verbally venting his fury as the pair headed for the tunnel following the final whistle.[LNB] It is not known whether Tindall was the subject of Jalal's ire and the goalkeeper later declined to elaborate on the circumstances for his heated reaction.[LNB] However, at no stage during the incident did Tindall appear to respond either verbally or by way of a gesture before Jalal stormed off towards the changing room.[LNB] He briefly returned the compliment to the travelling Cherries supporters whom had applauded him as he walked off the pitch before disappearing down the tunnel.[LNB] During the second half of Cherries' 1-0 defeat, Jalal had appeared to exchange words with team-mates Danny Hollands and Brett Pitman in separate on-field incidents.[LNB] Asked by BBC Radio Solent's Paul Scott for the reasons behind his outburst, Jalal replied courteously: I'm not going to go into that.[LNB] Things that go on in the changing room, stay in the changing room. I'm not going to say anything, I'll just keep it to that.[LNB] Jalal made a string of fine saves during Cherries' 1-0 defeat at Victoria Road and was only beaten by Mark Arber's 39th-minute penalty.[LNB]
