Sense At Uefa?

Last updated : 12 October 2007 By editor

The Guardian reports on a punishment for Dida following his disgraceful behaviour at Parkhead last week. While it may be seen by many as too lenient, at least it's a step in the right direction. The FA would most likely have banned Eric Cantona for 6 months just to be on the safe side.

'Milan's goalkeeper Dida has been banned for two Champions League matches after his theatrical reaction to being tapped by a Celtic supporter near the end of last Wednesday's match at Parkhead.

'The goalkeeper collapsed spectacularly after the incident with the fan, who had run on the pitch to celebrate Scott McDonald's 90th-minute winner. Celtic, as expected, received a fine after a three-hour meeting of the Uefa control and disciplinary body for failing to control their supporters and a lack of organisation.'
