Norwich striker Rocky Van Wolfswinkel has revealed he is glad that Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure wasn’t given a suspension for kicking him.

The Ivorian appeared to kick the Canaries forward during Saturday’s 0-0 draw at Carrow Road. With the incident having been missed by the officials, many pundits were expecting a three-match violent conduct ban for Toure.

But he hasn’t been charged and Van Wolfswinkel, for one, is happy.

Writing on Twitter, he said: “Good to see Touré not getting suspended. Players like him belong on the pitch!

“What happens at Carrow Road stays at Carrow Road.”

City’s title rivals probably have a slightly different interpretation of the situation.
