FA wait for word on Serbia charges

Published Add your comment

The Football Association is still awaiting formal notice of any charges reportedly levelled at England Under-21 players Steven Caulker and Tom Lees and coach Steve Wigley by the Serbian police.

Spurs defender Caulker, 20, and Leeds centre-back Lees, 21, are understood by the FA to be the players who may face charges after last month's stormy international in Krusevac. Serbia's public prosecutor is determining whether to pursue the matter but the FA has yet to hear anything on the record from officials in the eastern European country.

"The FA continues to remain in close contact with the UK Government regarding the continued media reports of Serbian police charging England U21 players and staff," said an FA statement. "There remains no formal communication of any charges to the FA or the Government."
