“I am not a dirty player”
In the second leg on Thursday he was booked for making contact with Dejan Lovren with a flailing arm.
The 28-year-old accepts he is physical but insists he is not ‘dirty’ and that the English game demands it.
He said: “I don’t want to elbow someone, I just defend myself. Okay, I am physical, I like to win my challenge but I am not a dirty player.
