John Carver reveals outcome of meeting with sent-off Mike Williamson

MEETING ... Mike Williamson, right.
MEETING ... Mike Williamson, right.

JOHN Carver says there are “no hard feelings” between him and Mike Williamson – the defender he claimed had deliberately been sent off.

Williamson was dimissed in last weekend’s 3-0 defeat to Leicester City for two bookable offences.

At the end of the conversation, we stood up, shook each other’s hand, and Mike has been fantastic in training this week.

And the 31-year-old and Daryl Janmaat, also sent off at the King Power Stadium, will miss Saturday’s home game against West Bromwich Albion.

Head coach Carver said after the match that he felt Williamson had got his second yellow card “on purpose”.

Williamson, in a statement issued through his representatives, denied Carver’s allegation.

The pair spoke on Monday and “shook hands”, according to Carver.

“Me and Mike have had a good discussion – and again, that’s going to stay private,” said Carver.

“Maybe I have learnt my lesson, but that’s going to stay private.

“At the end of the conversation, we stood up, shook each other’s hand, and Mike has been fantastic in training this week.

“All right, he’s not available for the next two games, but he certainly will be for the last one.

“There are no hard feelings. Every morning, we have come in, we have shaken hands, looked each other in the eye and just got on with it because we are professional.”

Asked if he had changed his mind about Williamson’s dimissal, Carver said: “I’d rather not comment on that.”
