Van Bommel spared disciplinary action

A German Football Association (DFB) disciplinary panel resolved on Monday not to open proceedings against Bayern midfielder Mark van Bommel after dismissing video evidence from the Munich club’s 2-0 defeat against VfB Stuttgart on Saturday. TV footage appeared to show the Netherlands international attempting to aim an elbow at opposite number Pavel Pardo.

According to the panel’s verdict, the evidence failed to support a potential charge of gross unsporting behaviour. “The DFB disciplinary panel investigation has definitively established that Van Bommel did not make contact with his opponent,” the association said in a written judgement.

<b>No reaction from Pardo</b>

“This indicates the realistic possibility that the arm movement was deliberately not followed through to its conclusion,” the statement continued. “This is also demonstrated by the absence of any reaction from Stuttgart player Pardo Segura, who made no attempt to take evasive action.”

Referee Dr Markus Merk did not penalise the player for the incident during the match.

Seems like we got ourselves our very own Wayne Rooney...

Professional players should not let temper get to their head. He was lucky he didn't do it to an Italian as God knows what would have happened...
