No A-League sanction for Fabio tackle



No A-League sanction for Fabio tackle

Sydney FC’s Fabio is set to escape A-League sanction for a crude tackle which injured Melbourne Heart youngster Ben Garuccio.

Garuccio was nursing a swollen right ankle and possible ligament damage on Monday but was yet to be scanned to assess the full extent.

The 17-year-old was felled from behind by a lunging tackle from the Brazilian defender in the second half of Sunday’s scoreless draw at Sydney Football Stadium.

The incident did not attract a card of any colour, infuriating Heart coach John Aloisi, whose club sits above only Sydney on the A-League table and are missing three players on Socceroos duty.

“I’m struggling to have players and then that tackle happens and there’s nothing, not even a yellow card,” Aloisi said post-match.

“I saw the replay and it’s probably a red card and I have to go one less player again.

“I keep my mouth shut every week about things and it doesn’t get me anywhere.

“In my opinion it was a terrible tackle and it should have been a red card … I don’t know if they can do anything about it.”

A Heart spokesman said on Monday the club was unlikely to take any action as there was little they could do and it was up to Football Federation Australia (FFA).

But the FFA’s match review panel was not planning to even assess the incident at Monday’s review session, as it was deemed referee Strebre Delovski dealt with it by awarding the Heart a free kick.
