He is getting away with it, only because, the ref never punished him. Had the ref red carded him, he would have got a heavy ban. The FA is a farce, not fit for purpose. Newcastle only just signed the man and it was a career ending tackle, had Haidaira's standing leg been on the ground it would have snapped in half.

Ive said it for a long time that the FA should be able to retro card players and give suspensions. It is specifically for stuff like that and for players diving. Can you imagine all the yellows players would rack up for diving and tackles like that ? I think they would clean their act up real quick.
