Everton release statement after FA take no action against Firmino

Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino will face no action following his clash with Everton’s Mason Holgate in the FA Cup third-round tie at Anfield.

Referee Bobby Madley made reference to an allegation of racist abuse which had been reported to him, understood to have come from Holgate on the pitch and Everton officials after the match.

Firmino and Holgate were involved in an angry exchange after the Toffees defender pushed the Brazilian into the front row of the Main Stand shortly before half-time of Liverpool’s 2-1 win and words were exchanged which left the young defender incensed.

“Having considered all of the available evidence, we consider it is not sufficient to raise a charge against Firmino,” the Football Association said.

“However, we are completely satisfied that the allegation was made in absolute good faith by Holgate and that there is no suggestion of this being an intentionally false or malicious allegation.”

Everton have released a statement accepting the outcome.

Roberto Firmino won't face discipline as result of Mason Holgate allegation - FA

Shaka Hislop and Mark Donaldson discuss what makes the Mane-Salah-Firmino partnership so effective and how they compare to other attacking trios around Europe. The English Football Association (FA) have confirmed that they will be taking no disciplinary action against Roberto Firmino in regards to the allegation made by Everton's Mason Holgate.

Euro Paper Talk: Juve star hands transfer blow to Man Utd

Man Utd have suffered a setback in their hopes of luring a £53m summer target, while Philippe Coutinho has reportedly told Lionel Messi that Liverpool are chasing a Real Madrid striker, according to Wednesday’s European papers.

 

MIXED MESSAGES OVER ALEX SANDRO FUTURE

Manchester United’s hopes of bringing Juventus wing-back Alex Sandro to the club appear to have stalled after the player hinted he wanted to honour his contract at the club.

United have watched the player on multiple occasions and were thought to be keen to strike a deal in the region of €60m (£53m) this summer.

The player has also been tracked by Chelsea, but assessing his future at Juve, Sandro told Gazzetta dello Sport: “I have always remained focused on my work and my only thought has always been Juventus, with whom I still have two years of contract.”

The former Porto man’s agent Federico Pastorello refused to close the door on a future transfer, however, and told RAI Sport: “The goal is to look around and he could still think about the Premier League. No doubt his non-renewal is a sign of his point of view.”

POLITICAL INTERVENTION TO ENSURE LIVERPOOL, SPURS MISS STRIKER TARGET

Warning: this might be one of the most bizarre stories you will read this week….

North Korean striker Han Kwang-song is more likely to sign for Juventus this summer than fellow suitors Tottenham or Liverpool, according to reports in the Italian press.

The forward has come under the watchful eye of the trio in recent months and was subject of a failed bid from Juventus during the January transfer window.

However, it’s strongly suggested both Spurs and Liverpool have kept a watch on the player and are considering summer moves to bring the talented striker to the Premier League.

According to Il Corriere dello Sport, however, the player looks destined to move to Juventus, however – due to the intervention of North Korea dictator Kim Jong-Un!

According to the paper, the North Korean leader has a ‘strong relationship’ with Italian senator Antonio Razzi and it was the two of them who brokered the player’s move to Cagliari in the first place.

Quite how that happened is not explained, but Kim Jong-un is reported to be a huge fan of Italian football and is keen to ensure his countryman, Han, moves to Juventus ahead of the Premier League.

Explaining why Juventus lead the charge for Han, Razzi told the paper: “Kim is a huge football fan. When he was studying in Switzerland, he used to go to the San Siro to watch AC Milan and Inter.

“Han to Juventus would be something extraordinary. He would be a perfect testimonial for life in North Korea.

“Thanks to this guy, Cagliari and Sardegna are well known in North Korea now and if the player join Juve, the club will be even more followed in the country.”

It may all sound a little strange, but the news could be enough to put Liverpool and Spurs off a move for the striker….

Cenk Tosun believes he can fire Everton to silverware

January signing Cenk Tosun is confident he can become the striker Everton need as they strive to end their trophy drought. Tosun has been an unused sub in two of Everton's last three games.

Cenk Tosun determined to be a hit at Everton

January signing Cenk Tosun is confident he can become the striker Everton need as they strive to end their trophy drought.

The Turkey international made back-to-back starts against Tottenham and West Brom immediately after making his £27million move from Besiktas, but he has been an unused substitute in two of the club’s last three matches.

Manager Sam Allardyce has admitted it was something of a risk bringing in the 26-year-old in mid-season but, after a training camp in Dubai, Tosun believes he can step up in the long term.

“I want to be a player that can help Everton to achieve what we want to achieve as a club. I am working hard to be that player,” he told evertonfc.com.

“In the long term I want to win some silverware in my career at Everton.

“The first few weeks were difficult maybe for my body and the adjustment but I can feel already that I’m adapting and I’m more comfortable now.

“Perhaps this season it will be tough to achieve the goals we would set out for ourselves because the first part of the season didn’t really go to plan.

“But we have turned things around and are only two points back from seventh position, so we have given ourselves a chance.”

Everton’s last trophy was claimed in 1995 when they beat Manchester United at Wembley to win the FA Cup.
