Probably agreed with Mogga that he's just a young kid and he didn't mean it so it doesn't matter. I wonder if Warnock will be sanctioned for being the real problem.
Seriously, the only way they can't do anything to him after all the visual evidence is if the referee adjudged it not to be a foul and wrote as such in his report. Isn't it true they can only apply retrospective action is if the referee hasn't seen and reported the incident as it happened?
Branthwaite is lucky he didn't do that to Mo Salah or Sadio Mane. It wouldn't be so easily swept under the rug.
I'm really disappointed that the FA haven't looked at Branthwaite's dangerous high kick and given him a ban. If kicking with studs showing at head height - whether intentional or not - isn't dangerous play, then I don't know what is. I feel it sends a really bad message.
