Swansea City ace blasts side over Luton Town loss, Stoke City’s £18 million man tipped for summer exit – Championship gossip

Luton chief Nathan Jones was quick to apologise to Leeds United midfielder Pablo Hernandez for their full time spat at Elland Road last night.

With the Hatters having battled and battled their way to a 1-1 draw against the league leaders, Jones had a heated exchange of words with the former Valencia and Spanish international, who had come on as second half substitute, at the full time whistle.

When asked about it afterwards, Jones was eager to take the blame for the incident, saying: “My fault. We had a little bit of an argument in his native tongue and I just wanted to show him I could speak Spanish.

“But I apologise, it was me that caused the problem, I probably said something that I shouldn’t have said, and I wanted to make sure I spoke to him, as it’s my fault.

“So nothing in it really, as I have the utmost respect for this Leeds team, they’re the best team (in this league), I know people here, I’ve worked with people who have played in the side, so it was a great point.

“He was having a moan that we defended so much and frustrated them, obviously they want teams to come out and have a go at them here so they can murder them, but we’re not that side.

“It’s one of those things, but nothing bad, we spoke, I got to practice my Spanish and Pablo got his apology.

“I said ‘hey, we’re fighting for our lives here’ and I was a bit vociferous in that and just wanted to make sure that he knew that.

“We’re not going to come here and be open, so that was all and I’ve been called worse and I’ve called people worse every day, so there’s no problem.”
