City Will Not Contest Ade Violent Conduct Charge



Manchester City have just announced that they will not contest the FA's violent conduct charge against Emmanuel Adebayor...

The statement reads...

'Manchester City announce that both the club and Emmanuel Adebayor have reluctantly accepted the violent conduct charge laid by the Football Association in the wake of the victory over Arsenal.

The player strongly maintains that he did not intend to act in a violent manner.

He apologised on the day to Robin van Persie personally and to the wider public for the outcome of the challenge.

We await the findings of the FA's Disciplinary Panel which is due to meet tomorrow.'

It is understood that City's legal team are in the meantime continuing to assess the situation over the second charge of improper conduct.

I don't know what your talking about Johnny. Henry just wanted to celebrate his goal with the Arsenal fans on the other side of the stadium ;)

The club obviously didn't want to risk a frivilous appeal by having an extra match ban added. At least there is a Carling Cup match next week even though I'd like us to win that trophy if possible.

Oh well, we take it and accept it and move on. In a couple of months (when he's finally free from his ban - Oh Heaven forbid, no! LOL), it'll all be forgotten.

Its a good point, the difference is JB, that The gooners fans thank that taunting a player comes in the price of a ticket and are allowed to abuse players but its only a oneway street in this respect. The gooners fans should have controlled themselves.

JB, it was a joke. Hughes said on Saturday that Adebayor wanted to celebrate with the City fans he has a 'special affinity' with and the Arsenal supporters just happened to be by them lol

Alright lads? Rooney danced at the City fans at the council house last year and nothing happened. At least the bluenoses could take it after calling him as fat all game.

Seems City have outclassed Arsenal off the pitch as well. We will have to expect more trumped up charges and take them on the chin. Contrast Hughes to whinging Wenger, i know where my money is.
