The FA has announced that there will be no further measures with relation to the incident Aston Villa’s manager Alex McLeish reported after the match against Arsenal.

According to the coach, Gunner Robin Van Persie hit Carlos Cuellar with the elbow intentionally.

“I thought it was a clear elbow, but the referee did not seem to think there was anything in it.

“Would I like the FA to look at it? Yes, if it was an elbow in the face – look at my nose, it is a result of elbows all my career. It is something which is dangerous.

“I never mentioned it to the referee. I saw it in real time.

“I don’t like to point the finger at players, but it has happened to mine enough times.”

The FA have decided not to take any measures to penalize Robin after the incident. The Dutchman is having an amazing season and he managed to confirm the form with an incredible appearance and two penalty-kick goals against Villa which turned the score around and qualified them into the next cup stage.

Arsenal’s striker who is playing on loan for Sunderland at the moment has shed some light upon his arrest, but without claiming to be guilty or otherwise. This comes after Bendtner was arrested for supposedly damaging several parked cars.

“The past couple of weeks have seen me involved in several incidents that have attracted much negative attention from the media,” Bendtner said in a lengthy statement.

“The latest incident involves two of my team-mates (sic) and me who were picked up by polite and friendly English policemen this morning as CCTV footage allegedly shows us in the process of damaging parked cars after a wet night out on the town.

“This case now has to make its way through the British system of justice and a verdict is expected by February next year. In connection with all these incidents I have to make one thing very, very clear.

“I am extremely sorry for all of this. I apologise sincerely that I have allowed myself to get involved in things that are interpreted in such dramatic fashion. I fully assume responsibility for not distancing myself from these incidents before they got out of hand. The error is mine alone and I am sorry that I have let so many people down. Basically, I am a normal guy with an extraordinary job.

“I tend to forget this at times but deep down I know these things. And it does not serve as an excuse for me letting myself get caught up in this.

“My family, my son, my precious girlfriend and football are the most important things in my life. And this is what I will have to focus on 100%.”

Bendtner seemed a bit guilty in the statement and if you would ask me I’d say that he did do those things, which is the least stupid from his behalf. What do you think about this issue?
