BREAKING NEWS: The FA has confirmed that no disciplinary action will arise after Sunday’s incredible Reading v Chelsea Premiership match, in which two Chelsea goalkeepers (Petr Cech and Carlo Cudicini) were hospitalised.
An FA statement said: ‘The FA has reviewed the incidents
involving Stephen Hunt/Petr Cech and Ibrahima Sonko/Carlo Cudicini and
has contacted referee Mike Riley, who confirmed that the match
officials saw both incidents at the timeâ€¦ There will therefore be no further action.’
I think this is the right conclusion. You can’t prove malicious intent on the part of either Hunt or Sonko (besides, I don’t think there was any), so let’s move on. The FA have acted swiftly, for once, and hopefully no more will be said about this freakish match, apart from to wish Cech well in his recovery.
