FA to study player clash

Published Add your comment

The Football Association have requested television footage of the clash between Arsenal players towards the end of Tuesday night´s Carling Cup semi-final second leg at White Hart Lane, after referee Howard Webb confirmed he had not seen the entire incident.

During the closing stages of Spurs´ 5-1 victory Nicklas Bendtner - who had earlier scored an own goal - became involved in an altercation with team-mate Emmanuel Adebayor, and appeared to complain of being headbutted by the Togo international.

Arsenal captain William Gallas stepped in to try to calm matters down, before then himself being confronted by the angry young Denmark striker and eventually, referee Webb had to intervene to restore order.
