Taylor backs retrospective action

Professional Footballers' Association chief executive Gordon Taylor is to call for the use of video evidence to punish dangerous challenges and diving from next season.

Taylor believes that not taking retrospective action against players such as Callum McManaman, who was not charged for his horrific, knee-high challenge on Newcastle's Massadio Haidara, sends out the wrong message.

He also wants incidents of simulation to be looked at by an expert panel of former professional footballers after the event to help stamp out cheating in the game.

Taylor said: "We are not saying matches should be re-refereed on a Monday morning but my feeling is there has got to be room to review such incidents. If there is a high-profile incident and the referee has not seen it and the referee's assistant has not seen it clearly then that should be dealt with.

"We could have a review panel made up of experienced people from within the game and it could also look at incidents of simulation, which I feel is another big problem in the game. If we are not careful we will get into areas of ambiguity and saying a dangerous tackle is 'not exceptional enough'.

"If there is any doubt for such incidents, for red cards that are being challenged and for simulation there is no reason why they shouldn't be looked at.''
