Jordan rubbishes claims from 'pathetic' Gattuso

London:

Tottenham coach Joe Jordan has rubbished claims by Gennaro Gattuso that a racist remark was to blame for the AC Milan midfielder's headbutt on the Scot earlier this week.


Gattuso has been charged with "gross unsporting conduct" by UEFA after headbutting former Milan striker Jordan following Spurs' 1-0 Champions League last-16 first-leg win at the San Siro on Tuesday.

UEFA's control and disciplinary body will discuss the case against the 33-year-old Italian on February 21.

His agent Claudio Pasqualin claimed Jordan had called him an "Italian bastard" but the Scot has rubbished those allegations.

"To come up with something like that is pathetic," Jordan told the Daily Mail on Friday. "It is completely and utterly untrue and something so wildly inaccurate doesn't do him much credit.

"He clearly doesn't realise I consider playing for Milan the proudest time of my career, that my daughter lives and works in Italy and that I love the country and the people.

"It's just a nonsense, it really is."
