Late last week, Fernando Forestieri was found not guilty by the courts for racially aggravated assault of Mansfield player Krystian Pearce.
However, the FA have now opened up more investigations into the Argentine’s part in a mass brawl that occurred between Sheffield Wednesday and Mansfield players during a pre-season friendly last summer.
As a result, he could face further sanctions from English football’s governing body.

It’s news that has made a host of the Hillsborough faithful extremely angry that their player is being treated in the way he is despite being found not guilty.
One supporter claimed it was beyond a joke whilst another said it made them feel sick.
Fans launched a scathing attack at the FA, with one fan branding them a laughing stock.

Forestieri had initially received a three-match ban and a £25,000 fine for his role in the brawl that happened last July. However, his punishment may not be fully complete, according to the Sheffield Star.
Here’s the best of the reaction from Owls fans on Twitter.
He’s already served a ban & been fined so how can they do more? Especially now he’s been cleared by court? No wonder our F.A is a laughing stock,make it up as they go along!

Beyond a joke really how he is treated.

I would hope, if the FA find him guilty after a court of law didn’t, that a lawyer is employed to take the FA apart in an appeal and question how they think they are above the law and court system.

Found not guilty in court. Banned already by FA. How the hell is he still in trouble?

This is a witch hunt now. Not sure how you can be found not.guilty by a court and then guilty by the F.A.
