Platt: City unlikely to appeal

Published Add your comment

Manchester City assistant boss David Platt believes Howard Webb saw Mario Balotelli tangle with Scott Parker during Manchester City's win over Tottenham on Sunday.

Although it is not anticipated there will be any announcement until Wednesday, City are unlikely to appeal against the violent conduct charge the Football Association brought against Balotelli on Monday night.

However, Platt has acknowledged the futility of an appeal, whilst questioning how the charge was brought in the first place, and he said: "What we think as a football club has no relevance whatsoever."
