Ince Clarifies Weekend Remarks

Blackburn Rovers manager Paul Ince has moved to clarify the "not a game for women" remarks that he made following the 2-2 draw with West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.

Ince had said: "The game is hard enough at the moment. The Premier League is a physical league, it is fast and furious, and people are going to make tackles.

"Give red cards for dangerous and malicious tackles where the studs are up, fair enough. It is not a game for women.

But he insists that his comments were taken out of context and has moved swiftly to clarify these thoughts and what he actually meant.

Ince told the Official Blackburn Rovers Website: "My comments were taken out of context, for there is no way that I would ever make disparaging remarks about women's football.

"In response to a question, I was simply trying to illustrate that the Premier League is a physically tough and very demanding environment.

Maybe he put it wrong, but he was right in what he was trying to portray, its not a non contact sport and hard tackles are part and parcel of the game.
