Monk avoids FA sanction

first_img After Fernandez was sent off by Stroud, Dejan Lovren’s header snatched a 2-1 win to send Liverpool through to the quarter-finals. “It’s clearly not a red card whatsoever,” Monk told BBC Sport. “If anything, the Liverpool player Coutinho’s feet actually come in above our player’s. “So how he saw it as a red card is not good, but he’s a good referee and hopefully he sees some sense and will rescind that red card.” Monk intends to hold talks with former referee Mike Riley, general manager of Professional Game Match Officials Limited, the body that trains and provides match officials, about recent decisions. “I’ll speak to Mike (Riley) on Friday. Just to chat and go through things, there’s one from Stoke and obviously this one (at Liverpool),” Monk said. Swansea announced on Wednesday: “Swansea City can confirm that the Football Association will not be taking any further action regarding media comments made by manager Garry Monk following the recent Barclays Premier League fixture at Stoke City. The FA, who asked Monk for his observations following the fixture, has reminded the Swansea manager about his responsibilities regarding media comments.” In the wake of Swansea’s League Cup exit at the hands of Liverpool on Tuesday, Monk’s wife reacted angrily after saying a letter was hand-delivered to the couple’s family home criticising her husband’s performance in his post. Lexy Blackwell posted on Twitter, saying she had received the letter from a neighbour. She wrote: “Absolutely incensed a NEIGHBOUR has the audacity2hand deliver a letter moaning at Garry’s handling of things/everything he’s doing wrong. “If u want2talk2him go2the Swans.Don’t come2my childrens home. Or better still,as u think u know better than him,y don’t u bcome a manager.” Swansea will be hoping for a favourable verdict from the FA after appealing against the red card shown to Federico Fernandez late in the game at Anfield. The Argentinian was dismissed by referee Keith Stroud in stoppage time for a challenge on Philippe Coutinho and faces a three-match suspension. Swansea announced they informed the FA of their appeal before Wednesday’s 1pm deadline, allowing the governing body to make a decision before Saturday’s league trip to Everton. The Football Association announced Monk will not face any further action following his post-match comments on October 19, when he was incensed over Moses winning Stoke a penalty from which they equalised on their way to a 2-1 win over Swansea at the Britannia Stadium. Monk also described referee Michael Oliver’s decision to award the spot-kick as “disgusting” and was asked to explain himself by the FA. Swansea boss Garry Monk has avoided punishment after accusing Stoke winger Victor Moses of “clear cheating” – and saw his wife rally to his support on Wednesday. Press Associationlast_img read more
