Crewe Alexandra boss David Artell says that the incident after Saturday’s FA Cup second round defeat at Cheltenham Town has been resolved after a chat with his captain Perry Ng.
Ng was accused of spitting water at Robins coach Wade Elliott as the teams made their way off the pitch, with Cheltenham manager Michael Duff making his feelings clear during his post-match interview.
Duff described the incident as a “disgrace” and said the same as the two managers chatted over a drink in the aftermath, but Artell has since played it down.
“I’ve seen the incident again and I don’t think either party will be happy with their actions at the end of the game,” Artell told Crewe’s official website.
“Perry has spat water on the floor after taking a drink and their member of staff has taken exception to that.
“He had been hurling abuse at him as he made his way of the pitch before it died down pretty quickly.
“I don’t think either of them would be impressed by their actions and I have spoken to Perry and dealt with it internally.
“It was a bit of a storm in a tea cup and they both walked away from it pretty quickly.
“We went for a drink with their staff afterwards and there was no issue from either club.
“We get on well with Michael and his staff. It is all done and dusted from our point of view and it was over as quickly as it started.”
