Martin Skrtel

Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel is charged by the Football Association with violent conduct. Skrtel appeared to stand on De Gea’s leg in the final seconds of Sunday’s game with Manchester United, which the Red Devils won 2-1. In explaining Martin Skrtel’s charge, the FA said in a statement: “In Premier League matches, if an incident has not been seen by the match officials, a three-man panel of former elite officials will be asked by The FA to review the footage independently of each other.”They will then advise what, if any action, they believe the match referee should have taken had it been witnessed at the time.”For an FA charge to follow, all three panel members must agree it is a sending-off offence. In this instance, the decision by the panel was unanimous.”
