FA to Take No Further Action Over Theo Walcott Gesture
The Football Association has ruled that it will take no further action over Theo Walcott’s gesture that enraged Tottenham Hotspur supporters during the 2-0 win for the Gunners in the FA Cup Third Round on Saturday.
In a statement by the English Football Association, the organization said “The FA has contacted Arsenal’s Theo Walcott and reminded him of his responsibilities regarding a ‘scoreline’ gesture he made in front of away supporters during the game.”
While Walcott will not receive any disciplinary action, The FA has contacted both Arsenal and Tottenham to seek their observations in relation to objects being thrown from both a home and away section of the crowd at different times during Saturday’s FA Cup tie.
“The FA condemns any such acts and will liaise with both clubs and the Metropolitan Police to identify those responsible and support the strongest sanctions available, including life bans.”
