Ronaldo escapes disciplinary action

Published Add your comment

Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo will not face any disciplinary action after kicking out at Tottenham's Michael Dawson at the weekend.

Ronaldo was seen to aim a little flick at Dawson after being tackled in Saturday's goalless Barclays Premier League draw at White Hart Lane.

Referee Mike Dean, who did not take action during the game, has looked at the incident but has not deemed it serious. A Football Association spokesman said: "We contacted the referee, who confirmed he didn't see the incident at the time and, having reviewed footage, he has also confirmed he would not have sent the player off for violent conduct had he seen it."

He added: "On that basis, no further action will be taken."
