Uefa considers action over heated game

2011-02-16 11:02

Nyon, Switzerland – The European Football governing body, Uefa, will study official reports from the AC Milan-Tottenham Champions League match last night before opening any disciplinary investigations.

Milan captain Gennaro Gattuso apologised for headbutting Tottenham assistant coach Joe Jordan after the final whistle of a heated encounter, which the English visitors won 1-0.

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp also called for stronger action against Milan midfielder Mathieu Flamini, who was shown a yellow card for a two-footed tackle on defender Vedran Corluka.

Uefa will receive reports from French referee Stephane Lannoy and its match delegate, Fernand Meese of Belgium, before deciding to open disciplinary cases.

Gattuso was also booked and will miss the return match in London.
