Birmingham football manager calls Jack Wilshere a big meany
4th March 2011 - Alma Shera
Birmingham City football manager Alex McLeish has accused Arsenal's Jack Wilshere of being a cyber bully.
The 19-year-old midfielder went to his Twitter page after Sunday's Carling Cup Final to criticise Birmingham's Barry Ferguson for his conduct after Obafemi Martins scored the winner.
'Well done to the BCFC player who slapped [Laurent] Koscielny on the head when they scored, very big of you!' he tweeted.
Reacting to the comments, football manager McLeish expressed his disappointment with Wilshere.
"It's not my world, Twitter and all that stuff. Cyber-bullying is not for me. We'll draw a line under it and move forward," he said.
Indications are that the damage to Ferguson's feelings will not keep him out of his side's next soccer games, although another injury might.
The Scot played for over an hour of the Wembley showpiece with a broken rib incurred during the match.
