FA Let Whelan Off The Hook

Stoke's Glenn Whelan will not face retrospective action from the Football Association over his two-footed challenge on Manchester City's Javi GarcĂ­a.

Glenn Whelan: "I've gone in for the challenge and I don't think I tried to be dirty but if it looks that way on TV then I'll have to hold my hands up. I don't think I caught him as much as he was rolling about.

"It's the English game, the old-fashioned game, and that's what the Premier League is so good for.

"There is massive pressure on the referees from the media and the people they're accountable to. Hopefully it [tackling] can stay in the game and people just get on with it."
