Today Valencia and Inter Milan will find out if they are to be
punished by Uefa for the huge fisticuffs that ensued after their Champions League tie. Valencia duo Carlos Marchena and David Navarro and Inter’s Nicolas
Burdisso, Ivan Cordoba and Maicon were also charged with gross
Uefa’s Control and Disciplinary Body will decide any punishments, with
a decision expected at about three this afternoon.
David Navarro can expect a kicking after breaking Burdisso’s nose in the fight which broke out at
full-time which saw
Valencia progressing to the quarter-finals of the competition on away
goals after a 0-0 draw in the second leg at the Mestralla. Of course, no-one really remembers the
result which was overshadowed by events on the final whistle which saw Inter coach Roberto Mancini calling Navarro "a coward".
Mancini said: "Now I have seen the footage there’s nothing else you can
say about someone who throws a punch like that and runs away." [Mof Gimmers]
