‘You talk absolute…’ – Matty Cash’s brutal message prompts slavish apology for bogus injury claim

Aston Villa defender Matty Cash has received an apology from a Polish pundit who falsely accused him of faking an injury.

Former Poland international Tomek Hajto said on television he believed Cash was not being truthful when he was substituted after nine minutes of his country’s Euro 2024 qualifier against the Czech Republic last week. The injury is, of course, genuine and the defender is expected to miss Villa’s next three matches.

Cash has now responded via his Twitter account, decrying Hajto’s claim and prompting a swift apology from the 50-year-old former midfielder, who quickly retracted his comments.

For context, Hajto had said of Cash: “I never said that he faked an injury, but I think he did. I don’t want to believe that after a few minutes, after which he went down, he didn’t want to.” rehab himself his injury is not a tear or torn fibers, it is an alleged strain.

“I would stay until Monday. I would like to heal at all costs and show the manager that I care. Say: ‘Sorry, manager, but I am ready and with Albania I will be the best on the pitch’ And now we find out what he is doing the suitcases and leaves”.

Speaking about the comments made by Hajto, Cash’s father Stuart responded: “I’m shocked that anyone would make such comments. Especially without knowing the facts! As a family, we are very disappointed in such words, especially since they were spoken by someone who was playing football.”
