Toure escapes FA charge

10 February 2014 05:01

Manchester City have received a huge boost after the Football Association decided to take no action against midfielder Yaya Toure for an apparent kick at Norwich's Ricky van Wolfswinkel.

The Ivory Coast star could have faced a three-match ban but the three-man panel of former elite referees which reviewed the incident did not unanimously believe it was an act of violent conduct.

That will come as a huge relief to City boss Manuel Pelligrini as his club chase the Premier League and FA Cup trophies.
