The FA has wisely decided not to take action against Swansea captain Ashley Williams for his clearance yesterday that hit Robin van Persie’s head. The incident happened after van Persie was fouled on the edge of the penalty area by Nathan Dyer.
Sir Alex Ferguson, perhaps in a move to turn the public’s attention away from a poor performance by Manchester United and two dropped points, bizarrely came out and said that Robin van Persie “could have been killed.” Thankfully The FA used some sense to take no further action.
