He is due to find out if his four-month ban for taking a chunk out Italy’s Giorgio Chiellini shoulder has been reduced following an appeal to Court of Arbitration for Sport on Thursday, but Scudamore confirmed that he believes there should be a ‘three strike’ policy when it comes to banning orders.
This is of course the third time that the 27-year-old has been slapped with a ban during his career.
“He is an undeniable, world-class talent. He deserved both his Footballer of the Year awards last year,” he said.
“But there comes a point when you just can’t go on defending the indefensible.
“The risk of something happening, whether it be this season or next season, is so high that you just say, ‘actually, thank you very much, it was great to have you while we had you, but it’s not worth the risk’.
“There just comes a point when, if you ask, ‘will we miss him?’
“Well we won’t miss the worry of every week, what is going to happen next and what are the headlines going to be for all the wrong reasons?”
