The Football Association have confirmed that Swansea have been cleared of any wrong doing following the game at the weekend.
Non of their players will be retrospectively done following the clash with Micah Richards on the pitch and they won’t be punished for their part in making the tunnel party like it was 1999 either.
Skipper Micah Richards hasn’t however been so lucky.
A statement by the FA read.
‘Aston Villa`s Micah Richards has been charged with improper conduct following an incident which occurred in the tunnel at the end of the game against Swansea City on Saturday [24 October 2015]. He has until 6pm on Thursday [29 October 2015] to reply. The FA referred a coming together involving Richards and Swansea`s Federico Fernandez in the 30th minute which was not seen by the match officials but caught on video to the three former elite referee panel. On this occasion, the panel did not find that either player had committed an act of violent conduct, therefore, no further action will be taken.’
So that’s nice.
