UEFA to study Bowyer incident

Last updated : 13 December 2002 By The Gas Man
UEFA will examine the match video and take action against Bowyer if they believe the Leeds midfielder stamped on Malaga midfielder Gerardo in Thursday night's UEFA Cup defeat.

A spokesman for UEFA said: "We haven't received the video of the match yet and we would need to look at the video evidence before deciding what to do."

"In order to use video evidence it must be an incident that the referee did not see.

"If that's the case then we will inform the player and the club and ask them to submit a statement and the incident is referred to the control and disciplinary committee.

"However, we do not expect to receive a video of the match until Monday."
