Henry given McCarthy's backing

04 Apr 2010 - 12:16:48

Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Mick McCarthy was furious after seeing captain Karl Henry sent off in the heartbreaking 1-0 defeat at title hopefuls Arsenal.

Henry was shown a straight red card just past the hour mark for a challenge on Tomas Rosicky, before Nicklas Bendtner headed home a last-gasp winner for the home side to send Wolves home empty-handed.

McCarthy told the club's official website: "I had a clear view of it - Karl won the ball and I've also had another look at it since.

"He shouldn't have got a red card, but that's the second one I don't think we should have had this season - with Stephen Ward at Liverpool as well.

"We were not kicking the Arsenal players that's for sure and there were quite a few players around the referee helping him make the decision.

"And the linesman for some bizarre reason who came about 50 yards and whatever view he had got of it I don't know. I don't know if that influences it or not.

"But I've no problem with Karl, I don't think he did anything wrong.

"If I thought he deserved it I wouldn't have done it (applauded him). If I thought he'd kicked him I'd never have comforted him.

"I don't want my players to kick people, but he got the ball."
