BLACKBURN Rovers winger David Bentley has claimed he enjoyed being the target of abuse from Millwall fans during Sunday's goalless FA Cup quarter-final.

The 28-year-old, who once played for rivals West Ham, was singled out for special treatment at The Den but wants to receive more stick on Wednesday, when the sides meet at Ewood Park in a replay.

Bentley told The Sun: "That is what football should be about. There should be more of it and every ground you go to should be like that, where the fans are fully involved. The language is part of it.



"At times we get a bit politically correct in this society. Supporters should be allowed to drink, enjoy themselves and abuse the players. The players should take it. Football's like a pantomime."

In fact, Bentley was seen to encourage the crowd when they began chanting about him. He added: "That wasn't the worst I've had. I was seeing what more they could dig up for me.

"We have gone too far away from it. It's nice to come to places and get this sort of treatment."

    It clearly affected him and the fact he has spoke about it proves it botherd him. However fair play for taking it like a man and not go whining to the press about the nasty Millwall fans. He has earnt abit of respect. Still a west ham c*** though
