No clampdown on two-footed tackles - Refs

Referees chiefs have denied officials have been ordered to clamp down on the two-footed tackle but are merely enforcing existing policy.

The two-footed tackle has been under the spotlight recently following a spate of red cards, including Boxing Day dismissals for Chelsea's Ricardo Carvalho Reading's Brynjar Gunnarsson.

But the spokesman for the Professional Game Match Officials Board denied there had been an instruction to be any stricter than they usually are.

The spokesman said: 'The issue of the two-footed challenges was discussed at the regular pre-season meetings the PGMO hold with managers and players.

'They were reminded of the key point surrounding the excessive use of force in the tackle.

'A player who jumps into a tackle two-footed is not in control of himself and therefore if he makes contact with the player, ball and player, or if the referee determines there to be excessive malice in the challenge, he will be dismissed.

'There has been no 'clampdown' on the tackle or new directive issued - referees are simply applying the law as it has always stood.'
