The Football Association will not take action against Manchester United for damage caused to dressing room walls after the FA Cup semi final defeat on Saturday.

Red Devil’s stars Rio Ferdinand and Anderson were involved in an angry bust up with Manchester City's Mario Balotelli but after viewing video footage the FA have decided against taking disciplinary action. United apologised after a dent was kicked in the wall of the United dressing room after the 1-0 defeat by City  which required emergency repairs so the room could be used by Stoke City the following day.

The club said it was they who brought the FA's attention to the damage on Saturday night after the match. A United spokesman told the BBC: "We brought it to their attention on Saturday night, we apologised and offered to pay. It was about three inches in diameter and was only surface damage and not a hole."

The Wembley Stadium showdown was a feisty encounter in front of 86,549 which saw United knocked out of the competition ending their hopes of repeating a historic treble winning campaign.
