Manager Phil Parkinson and defender Ben Tozer have defended Wrexham’s conduct after criticism from Billy Sharp after the Dragons’ FA Cup defeat at Sheffield United.
Blades veteran Sharp said Wrexham had “watched Spurs”, but Tozer disputed his claims.
“I don’t think any of our guys said anything disrespectful,” Tozer said.
“We certainly approached the game correctly, but if that’s how they want to be, then that’s how they want to be.”
Anel Ahmedhodzic had put United ahead early in the second half at Bramall Lane before Paul Mullin’s penalty brought Wrexham level.
Mullin saw a second kick saved by Adam Davies before Sharp and Berge scored in stoppage time to end the club’s memorable National League cup run.
Tension mounted after the match with players clashing in the tunnel, and Sharp was candid in his post-match comments.
“I’m glad we beat them,” Sharp told ITV Sport.
“They’re doing well in their league and we’re doing well in ours, but I wasn’t happy with a couple of their players there.
“The way they were as a club before the game, eyeing Spurs before the game – they hadn’t even beaten us.
“They thought we were going to turn around when they got back and I think the ref was helping them as well, I don’t think he gave me a foul all night.”
Wrexham manager Parkinson was unimpressed with Sharp’s post-match reaction.
“To be honest, I was a bit disappointed with Billy, screaming in the tunnel,” Parkinson said.
“I think he was disrespectful. The message to Billy is: ‘You’re better than that – our players are humble people’.”
Former Northampton, Newport and Cheltenham player Tozer said post-match events put a “drag on” a thrilling replay.
“He [Sharp] should show us more respect,” Tozer said.
“I told him face to face ‘show a little more humility’. We congratulated them on the victory. We didn’t come sulking, we walked as one through the tunnel as usual. just a shame that’s the way it ended.
“They showed a real lack of humility. But look, that’s how they want to be and I think if we had won that game we would have shown a lot more humility and respect.”
