MOST COMMENTED

"I have made myself a compilation of hard tackles with dramatic consequences over the last two or three years in the most important competitions in the world. I do not dare to present it, it would take away your appetite. It is terrible. This must go out (of the game). ... This is my wish, that all that brutality that sometimes goes close to criminality on the field is thrown out in the interest of our players and of a nice soccer game.”

-- Michel D'Hooghe, senior FIFA executive committee member and chairman of FIFA’s medical committee, advocates for stricter sanctions and a new mentality to end "brutal" tackling. His comments come after Manchester City's Dutch midfielder Nigel de Jong broke the leg of Newcastle United’s Hatem Ben Arfa in an English Premier League game last weekend in an incident that wasn't even called a foul by referee Martin Atkinson.
