Greg Dyke, the Football Association's chairman, says it is unacceptable that no further action was taken against Chelsea striker Fernando Torres for his scratch on Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen.
Torres was sent off during last month's clash between Tottenham and Chelsea at White Hart Lane, but the FA were unable to serve the Spaniard with a lengthy ban because one of the match officials had seen the incident - "albeit not in its entirety".
Dyke, speaking earlier today at the Leaders in Football Conference at Stamford Bridge, vowed to change the FA's current rules on retrospective action, adding: "For the FA disciplinary department not to be able to take action against an obvious scratch is not right."
Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas, who labelled the FA's decision as "disgraceful" and "farcical", clearly agreed.
Torres served a one-match ban but will be available to start Chelsea's next match against Cardiff City after the international break if he recovers from a knee injury sustained in Chelsea's recent Champions League win over Steaua Bucharest.
