FIFA Won't Pursue Sanctions Against Taylor

MOST COMMENTED

FIFA will not to seek any further sanctions against Birmingham City defender Martin Taylor over his tackle that left Arsenal striker Eduardo da Silva with a broken leg and out of the European Championship. FIFA spokesman Andreas Herren said a FIFA news statement that FIFA would discuss the Taylor case with the English FA was "imprecise."

"There will be a meeting next month with the FA," said Herren, "but it will be an exchange of views on disciplinary matters in general.
 It will not be related to the Taylor case per se because that has now been dealt with. The FA have pointed out to us the considerations they took in determining his sanction and the case is not going to be pursued by FIFA. Both sides felt however that a general discussion would be beneficial, and we hope the meeting can help us get a broader picture of the issues involved."

President Sepp Blatter said FIFA was aiming to crack down on tackles that caused serious injuries.  "We are considering a number of options," Blatter said. "But one we could consider is if a player is out injured for nine months, then the player who has caused him that injury also cannot play again until his victim has recovered."
