(Video) Sascha Riether Charged by the FA Over Adnan Januzaj Stamp

Fulham defender set for hefty ban following attack on Old Trafford youngster.

Fulham defender Sascha Riether has become the first Premier League player to be charged under a new retrospective action scheme.

The 30 year old defender, 30, appeared to deliberately stamp on Manchester United youngster Adnan Januzaj during Fulham’s 3-1 loss, but officials missed the incident.

Under the new rules, a three-man panel of former referees looked at the incident and advised Reither committed an act of violent conduct.

Riether has until 1800 GMT on 5 November to respond to the charge.

See the incident below and make your mind up over whether the Craven Cottage wide-man deserves punishment.
