FA Accept Tottenham’s Appeal Over Red Card Against Younes Kaboul

The FA has dismissed Tottenham Hotspur defender Younes Kaboul’s red card that he received in the match against Chelsea last weekend.

Following an independent regulatory commission hearing, the one-match suspension for Kaboul has been dropped. Kaboul was sent off in the game for denying an obvious goal-scoring opportunity for Samuel Eto’o.

The news will be particularly welcoming for Tottenham Hotspur, manager Tim Sherwood and the club supporters, especially considering Tottenham’s match this weekend against Arsenal (Sunday, Noon ET on NBCSN for viewers in the United States).

    So are they saying that it wasn’t a foul? Eto’o obviously dived so they should punish him. It was such a massive decision to get wrong with the score at 1-0. Completely changed the outcome of the game. The Rules have to be changed and players who dive must be punished retrospectively.

      I felt it was a foul, just not a red card. Eto was denied a scoring opportunity, so yes a PK.

      Just not a red card. Mostly likely not a yellow either.

      “So are they saying that it wasn’t a foul? Eto’o obviously dived so they should punish him.”

      Eto’o dived? I see the act of diving has been redefined. Don’t make me laugh. It was a foul. They’re just saying it did not warrant a red card. Simple as that.
