Toon could sue over unpunished horror tackle

NEWCASTLE could sue Wigan striker Callum McManaman for his horror tackle on full-back Massadio Haidara.
The 21-year-old escaped punishment for the challenge which left Frenchman Haidara in hospital when the Football Association ruled they could not charge him retrospectively because the incident had been seen by one of the match officials at the time and not deemed worthy of a red card.
It will take a second scan next week to determine the severity of the damage and subsequently how long the 20-year-old will be out of action, but although the club currently has no plans to resort to the courts that could still be an option open to the player who, it is understood, is yet to receive an apology.
