Manchester City‘s Yaya Toure is facing a three-match suspension if the FA decides to take retrospective action over an incident between him and Norwich’s Ricky van Wolfswinkel, according to Sky Sports.
The Ivorian midfielder appeared to kick the Canaries striker in the back after an ariel challenge, although referee Jonathan Moss failed to take any action at the time.
It is believed the FA are waiting to see Moss’ official report of the 0-0 draw at Carrow Road before making a decision on what action to take towards Toure.
But City boss Manuel Pellegrini admits he is not concerned with the potential outcome of the FA’s investigation and that he did not see the incident.
He said: “I didn’t see it and I’m not concerned about it.”
If Moss’ report states neither he or his assistants saw the altercation, then the FA are thought to be considering a three-match ban for violent conduct, which would see Toure miss City’s Premier League meetings with Sunderland and Stoke City, as well as their crucial FA Cup meeting with Chelsea on Saturday.
