Fulham assistant boss Steve Kean believes there are no hard feelings between Moritz Volz and Paul Robinson when the pair go head-to-head this weekend.
Volz has not featured since The Cottagers’ goalless draw at The Hawthorns where he suffered a broken collar bone and punctured lung after the pair clashed.
Kean has revealed Robinson apologised straight after the contest and that he spoke to manager Chris Coleman to offer his sympathies.
“It was a nasty one. He broke his collar bone and ended up having a punctured lung. It was a nasty collision but full credit to Paul Robinson, he came into the dressing room after the game and asked how he was,” said Kean.
“He phoned him a few times when he was in hospital as well, which was a really nice gesture. He even phoned the bus and spoke to Chris Coleman to say it wasn’t a malicious challenge, he was just going for the ball.
“Moritz was in hospital for a couple of days and it has taken him six or seven weeks to get back into full training. But that’s the way he plays – Voltzy gives everything in every challenge. Robinson is like that too so it could have gone either way.”
