FA take no action against fourth official for incident with Liverpool’s Andy Robertson

The English Football Association have reached a verdict on their investigation into the incident involving Liverpool star Andrew Robertson, and assistant referee Constantine Hatzidakis.

For those who may have missed it, the names of Robertson and Hatzidakis alike took their place front and centre in the English media headlines last weekend.

This came owing to a coming together between the pair on the back of the half-time whistle.

After Robertson approached Hatzidakis in an aggressive manner, the official was accused of intentionally directing his elbow into the face of the Liverpool stopper.

Hatzidakis was, as a result, suspended by the FA, pending an official review.

And, as alluded to above, the outcome of this review has, late on Thursday, been made official.

“We have thoroughly reviewed all of the evidence in relation to the recent incident at Anfield involving the Liverpool defender Andrew Robertson and match official Constantine Hatzidakis, and we will be taking no further action.

“Our comprehensive process involved reviewing detailed statements from Liverpool and the PGMOL, as well as multiple angles of video footage, in relation to both the incident and its surrounding circumstances.”
