Di Matteo calls for FA rethink

Published Add your comment

Roberto Di Matteo has called for an overhaul of the Football Association's disciplinary procedures following Chelsea's failure to get Branislav Ivanovic off a violent-conduct charge.

Caretaker Blues boss Di Matteo insisted the FA were wrong to find Ivanovic guilty of striking Wigan midfielder Shaun Maloney during Saturday's Barclays Premier League game at Stamford Bridge.

Di Matteo said: "I think everyone is looking for consistency in their decision-making. That's what is most important for everybody, all the stakeholders involved - consistency."
