FA Fail To Punish Tevez

FA Fail To Punish Tevez

CARLOS Tevez will not be punished for his role in the Etihad Stadium fracas, despite the FA stating his guilt.

The Argentinean international played a major part in the flash point of Manchester City's 3-2 win over Queens Park Rangers on the final day of the season.

The incident saw Joey Barton rightfuly sent off and given a 12-match ban for his frankly ridiculous involvement in the melee that ensued.

The most interesting factor now coming from the incident is that despite finding Carlos Tevez to be guilty, and referee Mike Dean admitting he would have sent the Argentine off - the FA will take no further action.

A report read in the Times: 'Mr Dean was questioned (by the commission) about the 'Tevez incident' for which Barton was dismissed.

'It was confirmed that neither the referee nor the assistant saw the alleged incident of Mr Tevez striking Mr Barton, although Mr Barton immediately made representations to Mr Dean.

'That is what happened and such comments by Mr Barton can be clearly seen in the video.

'The commission accept that Mr Barton was aggrieved by the action of Mr Tevez and Mr Dean confirmed that had the incident been seen by the officials as shown by the clip supplied by Mr Barton, it would have been an automatic red card.

The commission find that this does not, however, excuse the subsequent action by Mr Barton in relations to Messers Kompany and Aguero.'


The FA has previous with Queens Park Rangers over the course of the last campaign with Shaun Derry not getting his red card rescinded following Ashley Young's act of simulation at Old Trafford.

So you would have to assume the Times is telling porkies. In any case, you don't get sent off for pulling somebody back. Jeez!
