AVB labels the FA a disgrace

Andre Villas-Boas has been speaking about the farcical FA decision to do nothing and let serious foul play go unpunished thereby saying it is acceptable to gouge a fellow professional.

I talk of course about the Fernando Torres incident when he gouged Jan Vertonghen. AVB has not held back in his views.

“It’s extremely difficult to know where to start.

“Obviously, it is almost a farcical decision. It doesn’t matter to me which player or club is involved.

“Neither do I want to, with my words, put into question Fernando’s integrity; neither their manager’s, in trying to defend what is our position.

“I think the FA has made a decision almost a joke. It looks incredible.

“How can you see the images, pretty clear, and come out without punishment, on something (which) overtakes all professional behaviour?

“I think the decision is a disgrace. If the committee can’t solve such clear images I don’t think it sets out a good first example and we’re not asking nobody to retract themselves; the player to retract themselves.

“That would not be fair.

“This is a competition and in the end they came up with what they thought was fair for that.

“We don’t want Fernando suspended because it can make them weaker, because their bench is so strong, but I think the FA has lost all opportunity to put some sense into the images everybody saw.

“I’m extremely grateful for ex-refs to be able to enlighten people a little bit more, though I think most of you guys saw the incident as something that is not tolerable in football.”
