United Want Ade Derby Ban


Manchester United want Adebayor banned for his stamp on Robin van Persie.

The FA is today set to charge the Manchester City star for the Van Persie incident and goal celebration in front of Arsenal fans.


United’s management are urging the FA to act so Adebayor misses Sunday’s derby at Old Trafford. He could be banned for a total of six games if charged and found guilty.

United boss Alex Ferguson will be without Paul Scholes against City after he was sent off for two bookings at Tottenham.

Fergie felt Scholes had been sent off because of his reputation. He said: “I am not getting into whether or not a player should have been sent off.

“Inconsistency and decision-making is part of the game, what makes it interesting.”

And SunSport has learned City were warned about Adebayor’s behaviour BEFORE Saturday’s powder-keg clash at Eastlands.

Ref Mark Clattenberg spoke to City captain Kolo Toure and coach Mark Bowen about the striker before kick-off and that could count against Adebayor.

Police also want FA bosses to throw the book at Adebayor.

Former Met Police commander John O’Connor said: “I am sure the police will want Adebayor to be made an example of.

“From a police perspective, Adebayor could have been arrested and then charged with actual body harm for the incident with Van Persie. He would then have faced the prospect of standing trial in court.”

City boss Mark Hughes rapped: “The referee had a great view of the challenge and deemed it not worthy of a card.”

Premier League chief executive Richard Scudamore admitted: “These instances don’t do the image of the league or football in general any good.”
