ManU Manager Alex Ferguson's Media Blackout Has UEFA Preparing 'To Take Action'
Published March 7, 2013
UEFA CLEARS REF: In London, Simon Rice reported UEFA said it has "no problem" with referee Cuneyt Cakir following the fallout from his decision to hand Nani a red card. The Turkish referee showed Nani a red card "for his waist high challenge on Alvaro Arbeloa in the 57th minute." There have been "mixed views on the decision." UEFA has confirmed Cakir "will remain on its list of officials" to take charge of Champions League matches this season. A UEFA spokesperson said, "We have no problem with him. There are no issues for us regarding the sending off and we will wait for the official reports of the match delegate and the referee's observer, as is procedure. If they raise concerns then we will act" (INDEPENDENT, 3/6).
