Bolton Wanderers striker Ivan Klasnic likely to receive fine

Bolton Wanderers manager Owen Coyle has confirmed that striker Ivan Klasnic is likely to receive a fine for his actions against Norwich City on Saturday that resulted in the forward being red carded after making head contact with full-back Marc Tierney.

Whilst the player went down far too easily it was indeed contact and without doubt a red card was the correct decision however Coyle feels the player’s experience should have held him back.

“The skipper (Kevin Davies) and Tuncay both had to be sacrificed because of Ivan’s folly in getting himself sent off, will I fine him? He certainly knows my feelings on the subject. Sometimes, you can understand it when a young boy gets caught up in the heat of the moment, but he is an experienced player. He is a seasoned international who has played at the very highest level all his career.”

Owen Coyle continued:

“That is when you have to use your experience, because going down to 10 men when you are already 2-0 behind is not exactly ideal. He is full of remorse, but the bottom line is, you’ve got to keep your full personnel on the pitch. It is tough enough in this league as it is.”
