David Meyler: Facing no retrospective action

Hull City's David Meyler will not be banned for the FA Cup final for his apparent stamp on Manchester United's Adnan Januzaj after the Football Association decided not to take retrospective action against the Irish midfielder.

The referee, Craig Pawson, has told FA officials that he was looking directly at the incident which took place during Tuesday's 3-1 win for United at Old Trafford.

Under the rules allowing cases to be dealt with retrospectively, as the referee had a clear, unobstructed view it is not classed as the incident having not been seen by match officials, Press Association Sport understands.United's stand-in manager Ryan Giggs was incensed by the injury suffered to the 18-year-old winger.

He said: "I didn't see [the incident] but I have seen his leg, it goes from his knee to his ankle. It is the second time it has happened to him this season and it's not great to see.

"It is terrible, his leg. He needs protecting. He is a brilliant player, he is exciting and the authorities need to stamp down on it, whether that can happen now... but it was bad. I have not seen the stamp but I have seen his leg and it is bad. It is a joke."

enteke is an absolute steal for £32.5m, he would get into any team in the world (except Barcelona) at the moment. I've seen many very good strikers in my 30+ years as a Villa fan. This guy is the best without question.
