Manchester City midfielder, Yaya Toure, will not face any action from the FA following an incident in the Premier League game against Norwich on Sunday.
The Ivorian appeared to kick Norwich striker, Ricky van Wolfswinkel, during the 0-0 draw, but referee Jonathan didn’t see the incident in his back.
It was reviewed by a three-man panel on Monday, but the FA chiefs decided to not charge Toure. For an FA charge all three panel members must agree it is a sending-off offense, but it is reported that the panel were unanimous over the decision.
Whilst 'victim', Ricky Van Wolfswinkel, welcomed the decision, Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho said that the outcome sends the wrong message and players can do what they like in the back of the referee.
"Good to see Toure not getting suspended. Players like him belong on the pitch! What happens at Carrow Road stays at Carrow Road,” tweeted the Norwich striker.
Meanwhile Mourinho, whose side faces Manchester City and Toure in the FA Cup on Saturday, stated before the official decision was announced: "If the FA defends football, he has to be suspended."
When asked if he would be upset if the FA took no action, Mourinho replied: "Of course or it is the same for everybody else from now.
"Every player feels that if the referee doesn't see, I can do. It doesn't matter the cameras, it doesn't matter the consequences because if the referee doesn't see, I can do it."
Norwich manager, Chris Hughto,n also felt the incident may have been worth a red card.
"It did go unnoticed and there was no doubt there was a slight kick out,” he said.
"There was certainly something, but whether that was enough for a red card, then that is for the referee to decide on.
Toure’s manager, Manuel Pellegrini, tried to downplay the incident and said: “I didn’t see it and I’, not concerned about that.”
A three-match ban would have ruled Toure out of the Premier League games against Sunderland and Stoke as well as the FA Cup showdown with Chelsea.
