Newcastle full-back Yedlin on Hemed stamping incident: I'll leave it up to the FA

DeAndre Yedlin says he'll leave it up to the Football Association to decide whether to ban Tomer Hemed after he appeared to stamp on the Magpies defender during Brighton's 1-0 victory over Newcastle on Sunday.

The Israeli striker, the game's only goal scorer, stood on the American in the dying moments of the clash.

Hemed has denied he intentionally committed the act, while Yedlin has put his trust in the authorities to make the correct decision.

Yedlin said: "I was on the ground. Whether it was accidental or not, doesn't really matter, whoever is on the committee who punishes that sort of thing will figure it out.

"For me we have to learn from the day and move on. I thought he stamped on my calf but didn't see what happened. Maybe it was accidental."
