Coleman fury as coin hits Jensen
Fulham manager Chris Coleman
Fulham boss Coleman makes his point
Fulham boss Chris Coleman has called for the "coward" who hit Claus Jensen on the head with a coin to be jailed.

Jensen was struck after scoring the goal in the 1-0 win against Everton.

"I hope the offender is identified. It was a coward who threw the coin. Send him to prison or somewhere away from football," said Coleman.

Everton boss David Moyes echoed Coleman's sentiments but said: "It's unsavoury when that happens but behind that goal were mixed fans."

Moyes insisted it had not been proven that it was an Everton fan who threw the coin at Jensen.

The Everton boss said: "You have to accept there is as much chance of it being a Fulham supporter.

"He could have been aiming somewhere else. It could have been another player he was trying to hit.

"But if someone did that, then I agree they should be banned."

Coleman added: "Generally the behaviour of football fans around the country has got a hell of a lot better but there is no excuse for that absolute nonsense."
