Morgan Calm On Legal Talk

Sheffield United captain and former Barnsley defender Chris Morgan has claimed that he is unconcerned about any legal action over his horrific challenge that left Reds striker Iain Hume with a fractured skull.

Morgan put Hume out of action in November and whilst the Canadian is yet to return to any kind of proper training, Morgan has gone on to lead the Blades to a Play-Off Final date with Burnley at Wembley on the 25th May.

And the 31 year old who came up through the ranks at Oakwell is quoted as saying it is that match that he is concentrating on.

He is quoted in the Daily Express as saying:

"It has not been a nice time but you have to keep focused on what you are trying to do. It has been a test of character. You have to keep yourself together and in check. A lot of things have been said, but you have to be professional.

"I am probably lucky. I try to live my life, not so much to stay away from things, but to keep myself to myself. I have always tried to live my life like that. But you are always going to get people who have an opinion on things.

"Whether he presses ahead with legal action is out of my control. If that is in somebody else's hands, I will try to keep myself professional and the club has tried to handle it in the right way. All I can do is keep playing football. But we have gone from talking about play-off semi-finals and play-off finals to talking about something on a completely different line."
