FA make decision over Solskjaer & Shaw comments after Chelsea draw


Luke Shaw has escaped a ban despite the FA looking into his comments about referee Stuart Attwell after the draw with Chelsea, according to reports.

In an interview after the draw at Stamford Bridge, Shaw claimed Attwell decided against giving United a penalty because of the controversy it might lead to.

But the Red devils insisted Shaw had misheard a conversation between Attwell and Maguire after Attwell had been sent to the pitchside monitor to have another look at the incident involving Hudson-Odioi.

Shaw told Sky Sports: “The ref even said to H [Maguire], if it’s a pen it’s going to cause a lot of talk after. So I don’t know what happened there.”

Meanwhile, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was also furious that his team were not awarded a penalty.

Under Rule E33 (1), the FA can choose to charge a player or manager whose comments about an official “imply bias or attack their integrity” but they decided against punishment for either Shaw or Solskjaer.

A statement issued by the FA on Monday read: “The FA has reviewed all of the information available in relation to post-match media comments made by Ole Gunnar Solskjær and Luke Shaw on Sunday but does not consider them to be breaches of its rules and regulations and will be taking no further action.”
