I do not dare to present it, it would take away your appetite. It is terrible. This must go out (of the game). ...

His comments come after Manchester City's Dutch midfielder Nigel de Jong broke the leg of Newcastle United’s Hatem Ben Arfa in an English Premier League game last weekend in an incident that wasn't even called a foul by referee Martin Atkinson.
