QPR manager suspended for headbutting

5:51 pm on 10 December 2009

The manager of the second-tier English club Queens Park Rangers' Jim Magilton has been suspended following reports that he headbutted one of his players.

Media reports say Magilton headbutted Hungarian midfielder Akos Buzsaky after his team lost 3-1 to Watford earlier this week.

But Magilton has denied the allegations and says he's confident of returning to work, once QPR have investigated the matter.

He says while emotions can run high after a football loss, he did nothing wrong following the Watford match.
