Mascherano in the clear

25 Sep 2009 - 09:07:18

The Football Association will take no action against Liverpool midfielder Javier Mascherano over his clash with Leeds United striker Jermaine Beckford.

The 25-year-old Argentina international caught Beckford on the back of the head with a swinging arm during the Reds' 1-0 win at Elland Road in the third round of the Carling Cup on Tuesday evening.

Match referee Alan Wiley did not see the incident at the time, but has since reviewed the clash and has decided that no further action needs to be taken.

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez felt that the incident was nothing to worry about, while Leeds counterpart Simon Grayson was also not too critical of Mascherano.

He commented after the game: "Mascherano had an arm that went and nicked Jermaine, but sometimes they are not done for a reaction."
