Video of the tackle here.

Muscat cops eight-week suspension

Melbourne Victory captain Kevin Muscat has played his last A-League game after being hit with an eight-week suspension for his horrific challenge on young Heart winger Adrian Zahra.

The Victory are likely to play a part in the A-League finals but with only three regular season games left in the season they will be without their veteran skipper.

The 37-year-old Muscat was shown a straight red card during last weekend's Melbourne derby for the sickening tackle which will see Zahra miss the rest of the season with knee ligament damage.

The incident sparked outrage amongst the Australian football community considering Muscat's undeniable history with reckless challenges, and the A-League Disciplinary Committee handed down a harsh judgment.

Muscat can still represent the Victory in the upcoming Asian Champions League (ACL).

Melbourne Victory confirmed Muscat received a fair trial and the defender accepted his suspension.

"I was prepared to accept whatever ban came my way. While I was relieved to hear Adrian's injuries weren't career-threatening, I'm still bitterly disappointed by my actions and I wish him a speedy recovery." Muscat said in a Victory statement.

Though available to play in the ACL, Muscat may decide to announce his retirement before the start of the tournament.

"I haven't really given any thought to my future. My focus over recent days has been on Adrian Zahra and I was pleased to be able to personally apologise to him on Monday - which thankfully he accepted."

"My actions warranted a lengthy suspension and that's what has eventuated, so now I have to sit down with a variety of people and work out where we go from here."

Melbourne Victory football operations manager Gary Cole accepted the verdict.

"We acknowledge that Kevin's actions were unacceptable and deserved a lengthy suspension. We're extremely supportive of Kevin as our captain, but we certainly don't condone his actions in this instance," he said.

"We never gave any consideration whatsoever to appealing his sanction. Kevin knows he made a poor decision and now he's going to have to accept the consequences."

"Both Kevin's and the club's major concern has been the welfare of Adrian Zahra."

The final play-off spot will be decided today. It will be either Wellington Phoenix
or Newcastle Jets
that make the top-6. In perhaps odd scheduling decision,
Wellington will play before Newcastle do. Since Wellington are very likely to
win their match against North Queensland, more excitement would've been
had if both matches were held at the same time (or Wellington went second).

Michael Owen 'to be offered racehorse to quit Man United for Australia'
Surely not? He's only 31. With all due respect to the A-League, he must feel he's got a few more seasons left in him at a higher level.

Particularly when you consider the A-League's "Foreign Player of the Year" for 2008-09 is now playing for free for the side sitting thirteen points adrift at the bottom of the Scottish Third Division.

Evil hun bastard that he is :twisted:

A few.

Usually two of Sydney FC, Melbourne Victory and Adelaide United represent Australia in the Champions League.

The 2009 competition was a bit of an exception with Newcastle Jets and Central Coast Mariners representing
Australia.

Now, we can add Brisbane Roar to that list. They were the top team during the regular season and will represent Australia in 2012.

Code: Select all

2012: Brisbane Roar, ?
2011: Sydney FC, Melbourne Victory
2010: Adelaide United, Melbourne Victory
2009: Newcastle Jets, Central Coast Mariners
2008: Adelaide United, Melbourne Victory
2007: Adelaide United, Sydney FC


This means the following team are yet to qualify for the champions League:

Gold Coast United
Wellington Phoenix
Melbourne Heart
Perth Glory
North Queensland Fury FC

Perth Glory really stand out here as they have been around for ages, whereas the other
four are fairly new additions (with Melbourne Heart only joining the league this season).
Arguably, one could point out that Wellington Phoenix are an incarnation of an earlier
Auckland based team. However, in any case, unlike the other teams in the league they
cannot qualify for the Champions League as they are based in New Zealand, and not
Australia.

Sydney Rovers were meant to join the A-League next season, but their entry into the
league has been postponed.

Nice to see the Phoenix have made it again...

I am reading Gold Coast are in trouble as well...too much too soon by the looks. Why do leagues always think expansion is the way to go??? In the A-leagues case the talent base just isnt there.
Take out Gold Coast and Townsville and then add one team, perhaps in Canberra (who seem to have a good support) and I would assume Sydney would get another team out west one day and leave it at that...

I saw the crowd at the Gold Coast game was a touch over 3000 people, for a playoff against Melbourne Victory is outrageous........I know there is too much apathy now and to have any future presence in the Coast it would seem is a pipe dream now...thx Clive Palmer you wanker.
