Quote of the day

“It’s almost a farcical decision. It doesn’t matter to me which player or club is involved. How can you see those images and come out without punishment, on something [which] overtakes all professional behaviour? I think the decision is a disgrace… I think the FA has made the decision almost a joke. It looks incredible.”

Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas expresses his disbelief over the decision by the FA to not retrospectively ban Fernando Torres following the Spaniard’s scratch on Jan Vertonghen.
