Cahill red card appeal fails

Cahill red card appeal fails

Everton’s appeal against Tim Cahill’s red card in Sunday’s 3-1 win over Newcastle has been rejected.

The club appealed after the Australia international was dismissed following an altercation with Magpies midfielder Yohan Cabaye at the full-time whistle.

However, the club have confirmed, via their website evertonfc.com, they have been unsuccessful and Cahill will now serve a three-match ban at the start of next season.

Cabaye, who was cautioned by referee Andre Marriner, had issued an apology on Newcastle’s website at the weekend.

“I would like to apologise for the cross words I exchanged with Tim Cahill which resulted in his red card and my booking on the final whistle,” he told nufc.co.uk.

“It was unnecessary and, regrettably, the result of frustration and disappointment, all in the heat of the moment.

“It is out of character and for that I am sorry.”
