Lee Bowyer revealed what he said to referee Chris Kavanagh that earned him his red card at AFC Wimbledon.
The Addicks boss was sent off two minutes into the second-period of the 2-1 win at Kingsmeadow and was forced to watch the remainder of the game from the stands.
“First-half they got a lot of soft fouls,” explained the Addicks boss.
“Chris Solly got fouled along the touchline and I said “that’s a foul”. He was like no, no but then said to Chris Solly afterwards that it was a foul.
“So, give the foul. I said to him “it’s a joke, you gave four of them to them in the first-half”. So, he gave me a yellow. So, I said “well done”.
“Then he gave me another yellow. I don’t know. It’s up to them. It makes no difference to me. The three points are the most important thing. But it’s wrong.”
