Fulham boss Mark Hughes has criticised Aston Villa defender Luke Young for his tackle on Carlos Salcido.

Salcido was forced off as a result of Young’s challenge during Fulham’s 1-1 draw with Villa at Craven Cottage on Saturday.

The Mexican defender is facing a few weeks on the sidelines with ankle ligament damage and Hughes was unhappy with the manner of the challenge from Young.

“It doesn’t look good in fairness. He’s in a boot at the moment,” said Hughes.

“I’ve seen the tackle on video and the lad’s gone over the top and I would imagine it’s ligament damage.

“I don’t want to say how long but it’ll be a number of weeks.”
